Sir David’s passion for the LSO was deep felt and personal, demonstrated both in London and abroad. His support of our Barbican seasons in London, our international tours in Hong Kong and China, and our music education programmes with young people, was generous and inspiring. With his extraordinary regard for great music and musicians he was in all aspects a true friend of the Orchestra. Having entertained the Orchestra and our guests at several of his establishments, his zealous attitude to life and generous personality will be fondly remembered.
