Notes & Reviews:

Sir Colin was an incredibly kind and utterly unpretentious man who won the hearts of all who experienced him. A rarely encountered artistic bond existed between him and the Staatskapelle Dresden, [and his] death signifies not only the death of their revered Conductor Laureate but the loss of a unique friend." - Christian Thieleman
