DEATHS ELSEWHERE

January 05, 1995

Eduardo Mata, 52, a Mexican conductor who was music director of the Dallas Symphony from 1977 to 1993, was killed yesterday when the plane he was flying crashed near the Cuernavaca airport in Mexico. A friend, Maria Anaya, also was killed in the crash. In February, Mr. Mata was a guest conductor of the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra, and he was scheduled to return in September. He was known for his clean and direct interpretations. In his years on the Dallas podium, he improved the orchestra's performance standard and brought the ensemble into the national and international spotlight.
