We pause a moment to remember Frank Shipway, who died last week (Aug. 2014) in a car crash, aged 79. Arguably one of the 'best kept secret' conductors - he certainly played Sibelius to some acclaim, though he never recorded any. He did work with various Finnish orchestras though and let's quote his Beechamesque comment to the principal second violin of one of them: ‘Your job’, he said, ‘is to lead, not mislead!’

Shipway's recording of Mahler's Fifth with the RPO is one of those which will garner a well-deserved future cult following, in my opinion.
