Amid deepening confusion, with the music director insisting that no-one would be fired when all players are re-auditioned for their jobs, an inquiry was received late yesterday at the Association of British Orchestras from a caller claiming to represent the Brazil Symphony Orchestra.
The caller asked for urgent advice from the ABO how and where to notify British musicians to apply for a round of auditions at the Brazil Symphony Orchestra.
I suspect musicians in other countries are also being canvassed. Please let me know if you or your association has been approached.
I suspect also that musicians in Brazil are not being told the whole truth.
