The London Symphony has announced the death of conductor and composer Harry Rabinowitz on 22 June 2016. Born in South Africa, Harry Rabinowitz came to the UK in the 1940s and soon established himself within the industry, rubbing shoulders with the singing stars of the day as a music director at the BBC’s Light Entertainment division and as head of music at London Weekend Television. In 1985 John Williams nominated Harry for a position at the Boston Pops Orchestra, an experience he said was ‘one of the most rewarding and exhilarating jobs ever’. The LSO says: « His relationship with the LSO dates back to 1973 and together we had made over twenty film soundtrack and studio session recordings. »
