Eminent British Concertmaster Barry Griffiths Has Died, Aged 81

‘Barry made an enormous musical impact as leader of the RPO. He never failed to make the most beautiful and distinctive sound when playing the violin, whether playing solos in Brahms or Rachmaninov symphonies or just standing up in front of his section to demonstrate a phrase or bowing,” former Royal Philharmonic Chairman Andrew Sippings said.

“When I think of Barry, I remember a highly professional, always cheerful friend who represented all that was good about delivering world-class performances and fully enjoying the experience.”

Our condolences are with Mr Griffiths family, friends, colleagues and students.
