In Memoriam: William Bennett (1956-2013) by Jeff Kaliss

Bennett’s passion and humanity shone through his formal wear on stage, where his repertoire extended from Baroque to contemporary. “With MTT, we recorded all the Mahler symphonies, and the Second has a [mezzo] vocal solo in it, which was sung by the late Lorraine Hunt Lieberson,” recalls Paulson. “The movement within which she sang [the fourth] is a sort of duet with the first oboe. And between her heartfelt rendition and his, where one just sort of melted into the other, it was one of the greatest recorded musical moments that I know.” – See more at: http://www.sfcv.org/article/in-memoriam-william-bennett-1956-2013#sthash.FSb95AkS.dpuf

Here is the tribute from San Francisco Classical Voice.  So happy I was able to share some stories.
