Has Yannick quit Rotterdam?main
The Canadian conductor Yannick Nézét-Séguin is no longer listed as music director of the Rotterdam Philharmonic on his Facebook page.
The orch has sent its managing director Hans Waege on indefinite medical leave (as we reported exclusively) after disagreements with Yannick.
It could be that the matter is about to come to a head. If Yannick has quit, there’s no-one in authority to announce it.
Yannick is presently (as listed):
- Music Director at The Philadelphia Orchestra,Principal Guest Conductor at London Philharmonic Orchestra and Guest Conductor atChamber Orchestra of Europe
UPDATE: We’ve heard from Yannick. It appears Facebook has played around with his data. He’s still m.d. in Rotterdam.
