In The Region:
Conductor and violinist Lorin Maazel died Sunday. Maazel was the Cleveland orchestra'sfifth music director and led the orchestra from 1972-1982. He first performed with the orchestra in 1942, at age 12.

In a statement, the orchestra credited Maazel with leading the orchestra through a remarkable decade with concerts that "brought inspiration and joy to Cleveland Orchestra audiences around the world. His dynamic energy and acute insight brought fresh ideas to The Cleveland Orchestra’s performances and presentations, and as an institution serving the art of music, the entire Northeast Ohio community, and beyond."

Maazel was born in Paris in 1930. He was a prodigy who began playing violin at age 5, and he began conducting a few years later.
