The Korean TV channel MBC is about to screen a demolition documentary on Myung Whun Chung, music director of the Seoul Philharmonic. Chung is accused of ‘ethical violations’ a charge first raised by the orchestra’s discredited chief executive, who was forced to resign for bullying.
A trailer for the programme wilfully distorts (by selective editing) some comments that I made during the course of an interview last week. I very much hope my full contextualised comment will be heard in the course of the programme tomorrow. If not, I shall publish exactly what I said.
Meantime, a music business analyst, Arnold Nielsen, has published a full account of the sorry Seoul saga here.
