As the endlessly sad news of Claudio Abbado's passing broke on Monday 20th January 2014, heartfelt tributes quickly poured in from around the world: "a great musician and a generous man" (Sir Simon Rattle); "will always be part of the exalted group of geniuses in the history of the arts" (Gustavo Dudamel); "one of the wonders of the world" (Daniel Harding); "[Abbado's concerts] weren't mere performances of pieces of music, they were transformative existential journeys" (The Guardian).
