Prior to that he led the Leipzig Gewandhaus Orchestra in then-Communist eastern Germany for almost 30 years. The German government praised Masur for his role in 1989 as the GDR regime was threatened by mass demonstrations. Image caption Kurt Masur is survived by his wife Tomoko Sakurai-Masur. What we remember most vividly is Masur's profound belief in music as an expression of humanism," he said. We felt this powerfully in the wake of 9/11, when he led the philharmonic in a moving performance of Brahms's Ein Deutsches Requiem and musicians from the orchestra gave free chamber concerts around Ground Zero.
Kurt Masur is one of the most widely admired and respected musicians of his generation, not only as a distinguished conductor, but also as a humanist. A frequent guest conductor with the world's leading orchestras, Masur holds the lifetime title of Honorary Guest Conductor of the Israel Philharmonic Orchestra. Upon his retirement as Music Director in 2002, the Philharmonic named him Conductor Laureate. Masur's close and intense collaboration with the New York Philharmonic has been marked by a consistently high quality of playing and artistic spirit. Masur's recordings with the Philharmonic include a Liszt/Kodály album and the four Brahms symphonies. Successful new initiatives introduced under his direction have included the Rush Hour Concerts, Philharmonic Celebrations, Children's Promenades, and Philharmonic Forums.
The current music director, Alan Gilbert, said: Masur’s years at the New York Philharmonic represent one of its golden eras, in which music-making was infused with commitment and devotion – with the belief in the power of music to bring humanity closer together. Masur also worked with orchestras around the world, including the London Philharmonic and the Orchestre National de France. In July 2007, he marked his 80th birthday by conducting the two orchestras together at a concert in London. VanBesien added: The entire New York Philharmonic family sends our sympathy and love to his wife, Tomoko, and their son, Ken-David, and his wife, Melinda Lee; his daughters, Angelika and Carolin; his sons, Michael and Matthias; and his nine grandchildren. The funeral will be private and a public memorial will be planned for a later time.
He was 88. The death, from complications of Parkinson’s disease, was announced by the Philharmonic, which said it would dedicate its Saturday night performance of Handel’s Messiah to Mr. Masur’s memory. Mr. Masur (pronounced mah-ZOOR) was the Philharmonic’s music director from 1991 to 2002.
