Philip Langridge has died aged 70 following a positive diagnosis for cancer earlier this year. Recognised as one of the finest English tenors of his generation, Langridge was particularly well known for his interpretation of Janáček and modern British operas. 

Composer Harrison Birtwistle, whose operas include several major roles crafted specially for Langridge, described him as a “unique artist-musician" whose death has left "a large hole in the world's music".

Philip Gordon Langridge CBE, tenor – born 16 December 1939, died 5 March 2010.
