Groper is fired by Salzburg Mozarteummain
The university has parted company with its rector, the pianist Siegfried Mauser, who was convicted in Munich of sexual assault on a female colleague, and condemned by the judge as a groper. Salzburg has also dismissed him as head of its Biennale.
Mauser, 61, is appealing the judgement and is rallying influential supporters in Munich, where he was formerly head of the academy of music. His wife said he had suffered a nervous breakdown and is receiving psychiatric treatment.
