Roberto Minczuk, who required all players in the Brazil Symphony Orchestra to re-audition for their jobs, has been made to step down as artistic director of the orchestra under pressure of international protest.
A committee of three will take over the OSB’s artistic dirtection.
Minczuk will, however, remain the orchestra’s regular conductor. His ally, Eleazar de Carvalho junior, continues as chief executive.
Here‘s a local report. I was promised a comment from the orchestra’s management several days ago but they have gone strangely quiet… This story is, I fear, not yet over. Minczuk’s will need to engage in some intensive damage limitation to his international career.
