Christopher on Gustav Leonhardt: BBC Radio 3
January 18, 2012

Gustav Leonhardt, the Dutch harpsichordist, conductor and pioneer of the early music movement, died on Monday at the age of 83. He was one of the most significant figures in the field of historically informed performance practice. As a keyboardist and conductor he made some of the most defining recordings of the 20th century. His students, including Christopher who studied the keyboard with him during the late 1960s, are amongst today's leading figures in the field of early music.
