It has been announced that Hans Waege, dismissed by the Rotterdam Philharmonic on indefinite medical leave, has been named interim general manager of the National Orchestra of Belgium.

Hans could not get on, apparently, with music director Yannick Nézet-Seguin, who famously gets on with everyone.

He takes over in Belgium from Jozef De Witte, who lasted just ten months in the job.

    Shocking news. I feel very sorry for the National Orchestra of Belgium, as it will be the third orchestra Waege most definitely will (try to) destroy.

  • Sylvia Tot says:

    Hire to make the dirty job of merging : the only one he is able to do .
