It was the year we lost three legendary conductors - Abbado, Maazel and Hogwood - and some brilliant opera stars and music educators.
The Italian opera star died in September at the age of 104 after suffering a stroke. Olivero enjoyed a long and varied international opera career, singing around the world including at the Met in New York. She took to the opera stage for the last time when she was 71, but kept performing well into her 90s. The last known footage of her performing shows her singing at the age of 99.
