You may add this story to your collection of Brandenburg concertos.
The Intendant of the Brandenburg Theatre, Klaus Deschner, decided recently that it was time for the music director, Peter Gülke, to call it a day. Gülke, who is 82 and has been unwell, vehemently disagreed.
They shared some angry, vocal exchanges.
Then the musicians got involved, voting unanimously for Gülke, a nationally renowned figure, to remain.
So now it is Deschner, who is 73, who has been ordered to pack his bags at the end of the season.
