The Academy of Ancient Music is losing its manager after less than three years.
Ed Hossack, highly respected in the early music field, cites the long commute from his home in London to the AAM’s Cambridge offices as his reason for leaving. In the two years since Christopher Hogwood’s death, Hossack has greatly expanded the ensemble’s overseas brand.
But though Hogwood (pictured) left the AAM a bequest of just over £1 million in his will, we hear the latest accounts (which we haven’t yet seen) show a £190,000 deficit for the last financial year. Some tightening up may be required.
