Legendary conductor Maestro Bernard Haitink has this week conducted his final performance – leading the Vienna Philharmonic in a program at the Lucerne Festival on Friday evening, before entering his official retirement.

The 90-year-old Dutch conductor announced in June of this year his intention to finish his 65-year conducting career this week – following a heavy fall on stage at the Concertgebouw Concert Hall last year.

Respected as one of the finest conductors of all time, Maestro Haitink previously served principal conducting positions with the Concertgebouw Orchestra, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Glyndebourne Opera, Staatskapelle Dresden and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
