Lorin Maazel, R.I.P.

The great conductor Lorin Maazel has died, rather unexpectedly, at age 82.  We had a brief Twitter exchange a couple years back where I asked him his favorite Beethoven movement in any piece.  As an orchestra conductor, he would surely pick a piece for orchestra, right? No, he selected the exquisite slow movement of LvB's "Spring" violin (plus piano) sonata.
