National orchestra boss is sacked after 10 monthsmain
The national orchestra of Belgium has shown artistic director Jozef de Witte a quick route to the door.
The media have been informed of irreconcilable differences.
De Witte, a political appointee, had no recent orchestral experience. For the past 11 years he had been running an anti-racism organisation.
The position is presently critical since the orchestra is under threat of being merged with La Monnaie opera orchestra.
