Bruckner chief signs on with Putin

Hans Joachim Frey, head of the Brucknerhaus in Linz, Austria, will leave next year to turn the Sochi Winter Olympics site – a Putin propaganda project – into an international cultural and festivals centre.

Frey, 51, says he wants to create a ‘Salzburg on the Black Sea’.

 

The Salzburg press points out that he was recently the subject of a highly negative audit of the Brucknerhaus, which has failed to attract much international attention.
