June 18, 2018 by norman lebrecht


Kirill Karabits will cease to be Generalmusikdirektor in Weimar next year. His contract has not been renewed.

Vasily Petrenko will leave the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra in 2020, it was announced today. He will have served seven years as music director.

    Karabits has only been GMD since 2016. Things have clearly not gone well!

  2. Dolcian says:

    Just to clarify -Petrenkos contract was not renewed either, that would be much more correct information!

    1. Mamete says:

      And how would Dolcian know? My intel says it was very much his decision not to extend.

      1. norman lebrecht says:

        I think you’re right. My contact says he has another job coming up soon.

        1. Professor Emeritus says:

          You are not right, Norman. He was democratically voted out.
