From Arthur Butterworth MBE, composer and conductor -

A musician of immense imagination, Adrian Smith possessed not only ability as an historian and eloquent commentator on musical matters but also, as a conductor of considerable enterprise and enthusiasm, the facility to persuade others - both musicians and listeners alike - to explore new musical paths in the many outstanding and captivating programmes he devised and directed with such rewarding success, to the lasting pleasure and enlightenment of us all.
