Sir Colin Davis, Legendary Conductor, Dies at 85

Sad evening in classical music world, as one of the greats of the era has died.  Coming to this world very late, I did manage to watch him conduct, at close range in recent years in NYC, Beethoven's "Eroica" and the "Missa Solemnis," both with the London Symphony.   Here he conducts the "Missa" just two years ago at the Proms, this segment being one of the greatest musical pieces ever written.
