Just in: German orchestra fires Spanish music directormain
A vote of no confidence by musicians in the Halle state orchestra has apparently led the city to terminate the contract of general music director Josep Caballé-Domenech after a single term. He will leave in the middle of next year.
The musicians’ decision took the city council by surprise. They avoided naming it as a cause for the conductor’s dismissal.
Josep Caballé-Domenech, 44, is also music director of the Colorado Springs Philharmonic and an international guest conductor . Some musicians felt he spent too much time commuting.
