IN MEMORIAM Boston has recently lost two outstanding citizens from opposite ends of its musical community. Musicologist Reinhold Brinkmann had been the long-time chair of Harvard University's Music Department, a distinguished scholar who edited the definitive edition of Schoenberg's landmark Pierrot lunaire, and a humane voice for regarding music as connected to all the arts. And Charles Ansbacher, founder and conductor of the Boston Landmarks Orchestra, fulfilled his dream of making classical music available to those for whom it seemed most out of reach by bringing high-level free concerts into public spaces like the city's parks — and even Fenway Park. Both of them will be deeply missed and warmly remembered.
