Oliver Knussen obituary

One of the most influential British composers and conductors of his generation

Oliver Knussen, who has died aged 66, was a towering figure in contemporary music, as composer and conductor, teacher and artistic director. The relatively small size of his compositional output conceals music of exceptional refinement and subtlety - a few bars of Knussen may have more impact than whole movements by lesser composers.

Alan Davey, controller of BBC Radio 3, BBC Proms and BBC Orchestras commented: "Olly's death is devastating - he is a towering and irreplaceable figure in British music and had many associations over the years with BBC Symphony Orchestra, BBC Proms and BBC Radio 3.

"His compositions had such strength, economy and clarity. He selflessly championed the music of fellow composers and was an all-round lovely, thoughtful, engaging man who will be hugely missed by everyone. Our thoughts are with his family and friends."

The beloved English classical music figure was known for his operatic adaptations of two children's works in conjunction with author Maurice Sendak: Where The Wild Things Are and Higglety Pigglety Pop!
