Early Music Conductor Nikolaus Harnoncourt Has Passed Away – Aged 86

Celebrated Austrian conductor, Nikolaus Harnoncourt has died today – aged 86. He will be remembered as a leading pioneer in “period performance practice” of the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical periods. He had appeared with many of the world’s leading international orchestras, including conducting the 2001 and 2003 Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s Concert and was the founder of the Concentus Musicus Wien – an eminent chamber ensemble focused intensively on Baroque and Renaissance music and performance practice. He announced his retirement from the concert stage, due to poor health, in December last year.
