Maestro’s reluctant move: Germans tell US music director he can gomain
The city of Aachen has told music director Kazim Abdullah he can leave in July.
Abdullah, 38, is just two years into a five-year contract.
He says he is ‘bitterly disappointed’.
But 18 months ago he told the orchestra he didn’t want to stay beyond July 2017.
So there appear to be two parallel narratives.
A bit like the EU and Theresa May.
