The BBC are reporting that Richard Hickox, who along with Vernon Handley was, in my opinion, the greatest conductor of Vaughan Williams's music, has died suddenly of a heart attack. He was just 60. This year he conducted the entire cycle of Vaughan Williams symphonies to mark the composer's 50th anniversary year. He really was very good at what he did, and it's a sad loss.
