Claudio Abbado 1933 – 2014

I loved his Hungarian Dance. I used to listen to it over and over but never got tired of it. It’s probably my favorite music piece of all time. I vaguely believed that I would see his live performance one of these days…
the day I heard his passing I played Abbado’s Hungarian Dance for my 4 year old daughter. It was her first orchestral music that she listened to with sincerity.
