Breaking: Denmark boycotts Brazil crisis conductor
May 30, 2011 by Norman Lebrecht
News is just in that the Odense Symphony Orchestra in Denmark has refused to work with Roberto Minczuk, who has sacked half of the Brazil Symphony Orchestra and is scouring the world for replacements. The Odense action, backed by the country’s musicians union, represents further isolation for Minczuk and the rump of his orchestra.
Here are the documents:
To Mr Roberto Minczuk:
Today the musicians of Odense Symphony Orchestra have issued this statement to the press.
The Danish Musicians Union supports this statement and we urge you to go back to Brazil and
Solve the problems you have with the Brazilian Symphony Orchestra through negotiations with
The musicians and their representatives!
Until then – unfortunately – you will not be welcomed in Denmark.
The Danish Musicians Union
