It was an honour to have met and known Chris only for a short time, during a two week period at Dartington International Summer School 2019,  where he was conducting the orchestra in which I played. His charisma and infectious enthusiasm, warmth and humour were clear to all – evidenced by his many tributes – what a truly special person he was, and how he left behind a mark on all those he came into contact with. 

I hope this knowledge can bring some solitude to those who will miss him most. 

A great sadness. RIP Christopher Quentin.
