Rameau’s town abolishes its orchestraUncategorized
In the tercentenary year of the death of Jean-Philippe Rameau, the composer’s native town of Dijon has decided to get rid of its orchestra.
The mayor, refusing to cough up 330,000 Euros that would have saved l’Orchestre Dijon Bourgogne, said: ‘this town is not a cash machine’.
He’s right. It’s nothing without Rameau (and mustard).
