Sir Colin Davis

Our Showdown today pays tribute to English conductor Sir Colin Davis, who died on Sunday at the age of 85. Davis was the president of the London Symphony Orchestra and that orchestra’s longest-serving conductor. He was particularly well-known for his interpretations of Mozart, Berlioz and Sibelius, so we offered you a choice of performances by these composers. 

Sibelius led all morning and at noon we played his Fifth Symphony.
