Brazil: orchestra now in full retreatmain
Events are moving fast in Rio.
O Globo reports that the OSB has invited the 33 sacked musicians to resume their former jobs, under terms to be negotiated. The new three-person artistic committee has taken over planning, sidelining the former director Roberto Minczuk. And the withdrawal yesterday of Minczuk’s mentor Kurt Masur, reportedly for medical reasons, has eliminated one of the last flashpoints in the dispute.
Hopefully, peace might break out soon.
For the moment, the OSB management are saying nothing.
