German media boss to 148 composers: ‘Please refer to my letter to 160 conductors’

Abrupt to the point of rudeness, the beleaguered Peter Boudgoust who is trying to merge two SWR orchestras has told some of the world’s leading composers:

“Because your demands and arguments are very similar to those put forward by the conductors, we happily pass on to you the statement we printed on our website. We would be grateful if you could forward it to all those who signed your letter.”
He ends with:
“We would like to stress that we very much value your commitment to the Baden-Baden and Freiburg Symphony Orchestra. We would be happy if you could take note of our arguments.”
