Our friends at Resmusica tell us that the Royal philharmonic orchestra of Liège has a new general manager. His name is Daniel Weissmann and his prior experience is with two rather provincial orchestras in France.
But that was no drawback. According to official sources, what got him the job was »ses qualités professionnelles évidemment, sa disponibilité rapide, sa volonté de s’installer durablement à Liège, et les conditions financières de son engagement. »
In plain English: his obvious professional qualities, his rapid availability, his readiness to settle long-term in Liège and his financial terms.
In even plainer English: he’s cheap.
