Paris: Maestro latestmain
Mikko Franck has not resigned as music director of the Orchestre philharmonique de Radio France. That is now official.
All else is fluid, uncertain and moving in various directions. We hope to bring you further developments during the course of the day.
The orchestra will strike on Friday.
Meanwhile, musicians of the Orchestre National de France had a long meeting with the director of Radio France who assured them that there is absolutely no project of a forced merger between the two radio orchestras. The meeting took place on Friday but has not yet filtered through to the unhappy musicians of the philharmonique.
