Maestro stays (1): Dresden

Musicians in the Dresden Staatskapelle have voted by a large majority to extend the contract of their chief conductor, Christian Thielemann.

No surprise there.

Thielemann, 58, has been in charge since 2009.

      • I see. So the orchestra vote was a required vote of confidence, BEFORE the negotiations with the employer, the state of Saxony, can be finalized. And before those are finalized, they are not finalized… It should have been reported that way then.
        Also Thielemann is not in charge since 2009 IIRC. His initial contract started in 2012?
        I just read the statement of the orchestra board speaker in a German blog regarding the majority confidence vote. Now if one can read between the lines…
