Claudio Abbado, a conductor whose refined interpretations of a large symphonic and operatic repertory won him the directorships of several of the world’s most revered musical institutions — including La Scala, the London Symphony Orchestra, the Vienna Philharmonic, the Vienna State Opera and the Berlin Philharmonic — died on Monday. He was 80.

(Just yesterday I had read that his Orchestra Mozart had suspended activity temporarily and the article mentioned Abbado’s health as a possible issue. I’m very sad to read this news today.)
