There can’t be many people around with a more informed view of the global classical music arena than Sir Clive Gillinson. The 72-year-old, Bangalore, India-born, New York-resident Brit has an experienced handle on the performance and administrative side of the sector, as well as being responsible for putting together repertoires at one of the world’s most prestigious concert facilities.Gillinson was in Jerusalem last week to pick up yet another award in a still-evolving long, glittering career: He was named an Honorary Fellow of Hebrew University’s Jerusalem Academy of Music and Dance. The new title joins an impressive personal honors list that includes a CBE (Commander of the Order of the British Empire) and a knighthood, as well as the 2004 Making Music Sir Charles Grove Prize for his outstanding contribution to British music.
