AP reports that Eloisa Maturen has filed for divorce in a Los Angeles court against Gustavo Dudamel, the Philharmonic music director, claiming ‘irreconcilable differences’. The couple, former teenage sweethearts, have been married for nine years. They have a three year-old son.


Dudamel is presently on a Far East tour with the LA Phil.

    Another relationship that couldn’t stand up to the unnatural forces imposed by this strange profession.

  • Una says:

    Sounds like soap opera again in the big starts of classical music world with these announcements … where does the child come in all of this …
