Just when you thought things could not get worse at the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, they just did.
We read today that the orchestra’s president Florence Notter has dismissed Richard Dubugnon as composer in residence, giving no reason. Various projects with him have been cancelled.
Dubugnon, who once played in the orchestra’s double-bass section, went public this morning and is going to court for damages.
Everywhere outside Geneva, the OSR is a byword for bad management.
