The Greek violinist who played on past 90

Giorgos Koros, who has died weeks short of his 92nd birthday, was a self-taught musician who became a household name in his native land. He composed some 1,200 works in a traditional mode and is seen here playing at the age of 90. May he enjoy a well-earned rest.
