Conductor George Hurst has died at the age of 86.
The Scottish bandleader passed away in Edinburgh last week (ends16Sep12). Details of his death have not been released as WENN goes to press.
Starting his career as a student at the Royal Conservatory in Toronto, Canada, he became the principal conductor following his return to the U.K. in the 1950s, when he took charge of the Bbc Northern Orchestra, which is now known as the Bbc Philharmonic.
He went on to lead every major orchestra in the U.K. and Ireland, and worked with some of the most renowned musicians in Europe, including the Nord Deutsch Rundfunk Symphony Orchestra, the Orchestre National Paris, and the Royal Danish Orchestra.
Hurst also took the helm of Peabody Conservatory Orchestra and the Symphony Orchestra of York, Pennsylvania early in his career.
