Child prodigy, composer and consummate conductor: we celebrate the incredible career of Lorin Maazel, who died on 13 July 2014, at the age of 84.
Born in 1930 to Jewish American parents in France, Maazel showed musical promise from a young age. It's perhaps no surprise, considering his musical heritage: his father worked as a singing teacher, his mother founded the Pittsburgh Youth Symphony Orchestra, and his grandfather, Isaac, was a violinist in the Metropolitan Opera Orchestra.
