A sudden death, an unexpected disappearance
The only small consolation, the conductor lost his life doing what he loved to do more than anything in the world. He died on stage and that is what so many artists aspire to as they approach the end of their lives. Also, Stefan Soltesz was a great lover of Richard Strauss.
Our colleagues from the magazine Closer ensure that the conductor died while working on his favorite composer. Supporting evidence, Objeko grant it to you. Because in 2019, at the turn of an interview, Stefan Soltesz spoke about it with fervor.
“What I particularly like about this composer is that if you play him well, despite a huge orchestra, it’s not just loud. There are a lot of colors, and you can use them. », he said. No doubt, he will be terribly missed by the music world.
Finally, writingObjeko therefore takes the liberty of addressing its condolences to the friends and family of the conductor. We also wish courage to those who witnessed his collapse on stage, in the middle of a concert.
