Cincinnati Pops conductor Erich Kunzel died this morning at a hospital in Bar Harbor, Maine, after a five-month struggle with cancer.
He also was the conductor of the "From the Top at the Pops" recording we have been featuring this week on Violinist.com.
"Erich Kunzel, RIP. Just heard the news. Very sorry to see him go," said "From the Top" host Christopher O'Riley in a Facebook post today. "Proud to have been a part of his last Telarc recording, along with some exceptionally talented kids who have no doubt been spoiled prematurely by working with a conductor of such grace, wit and generosity."I'd invite you to share any memories you have of Erich Kunzel.
