Maestro Lorin Maazel died at his home in Castleton, Va. on July 13, following a brief illness. Called to the podium and handed the baton by the great Toscanini as a child, Maazel's career spanned decades and saw him to the podium of most of the world's great orchestras. Maazel was legendary for his ruthlessness of the execution: "A conductor must lead, and people want to be led; that's why they're there."
