Everyday Rather Live in Classic Eras

Remembering Christopher Hogwood

Hogwood has died at the age of 73 following an illness lasting several months.

Hogwood’s Mozart symphony-cycle  with the Academy of Ancient Music, which began in the late 1970s, won a Gramophone Award and changed the perception of period-instrument performance. Hogwood founded the Early Music Consort in 1967 with David Munrow, and the Academy of Ancient Music in 1973. He was awarded a CBE in 1989.
