New York Phil nails principal trumpetmain
The tug of war is over.
Earlier this week, Christopher Martin asked the Chicago Symphony Orchestra for a year’s leave of absence to play with the New York Philharmonic.
Today the NY Phil press department (also known as the New York Times) has announced that he is their new principal trumpet.
Maestro Muti will not be pleased.
It looks like Mr Martin has been talking to New York’s incoming music director.
