“All of us at Peabody are saddened to hear of the passing of Gustav Meier, a great musician, pedagogue and colleague who for 18 years made Peabody’s conducting program one of the best of its kind.  Gustav Meier provided a daily example of the intellect, artistry, and mastery he worked to cultivate in his students, always delivered with a gentleness, charm, and grace that is rare.  His influence shaped the careers of countless professional conductors and musicians working today.  Through them, and through the graduate conducting program he built up at Peabody, his impact will live on.  We are honored to have known and worked with Gustav and send our deepest condolences to his family.”
