Classics of the Phonograph

Jeffrey Tate, in memoriam


The British conductor Jeffrey Tate passed away in June. Tate was born with a spinal affliction, but, nevertheless, he rose to the peak of his conducting specialty. Tate was conductor of the English Chamber Orchestra, where he recorded famous performances of Mozart and Haydn. Active in opera houses, Tate accompanied divas such as Kiri Te-Kanawa and Renee Fleming.

On this week's Classics of the Phonograph, Saturday at 11 am on WILL-FM, we will hear some of his outstanding recordings.
