Armin Jordan (Conductor)
Born: 9th April 1932, Luzern, Switzerland
Died: 20th September 2006, Zürich, Switzerland
Armin Jordan was a Swiss conductor known for his interpretations of French music, Mozart and Wagner.
Armin Jordan was born in Lucerne, Switzerland. "Mr. Jordan was a large man, with a slab of a face and a full mouth, often twisted in a sardonic smile, and his powerful physical presence belied the careful near-understatement of his conducting", noted The New York Times in his obituary.
Jordan was most unusual at a time when conductors flew about the world from one engagement to another.
