Dynamic conductor Seiji Ozawa spent formative years leading Toronto Symphony

February 12, 2024
Seiji Ozawa, the Japanese conductor known for both his dynamic physicality and advocacy of new music, died of heart failure at his home in Tokyo on Feb. 6. He was 88.An influential and beloved figure within the classical world, Mr. Ozawa was a passionate supporter of contemporary composition as well as a sensitive interpreter of traditional repertoire. His arrival onto the music scene in the late 1950s was crucial in raising the profile of visible minorities there. He was the first Japanese person to win at the International Competition of Orchestra Conductors in Besançon, France, and the first Japanese conductor to lead the annual Vienna Philharmonic New Year’s Concert.
