Kieron Moore, principal oboe of the London Symphony Orchestra who died on Sunday morning, was the least flashy soloist of an often exuberant ensemble. But his quiet presence at the centre was often remarked upon by critics and concertgoers long after the more dazzling moments were forgotten. He will be terribly missed.
Kieron spent the last five years fighting cancer. If you worked with him, or admired his skills, do post your appreciation below for friends and family to share. Conductor tributes would be especially appreciated.
