We hear that Eoin Andersen is leaving the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra after two years.

The Wiconsin violinist, formerly principal second violin of Zurich Opera, maintains a second home in Berlin.

His departure was reported on classical radio.


  • Doug Grant says:

    MSO also has the excellent Dale Barltrop as concertmaster Barltrop has led the orchestra in most concerts recently.

  • Jose Cecile says:

    I hear Mr Barltrop is not easy to get along with.

  • Old Man in the Midwest says:

    Only the best musicians are allowed to grab their chin on photo shoots.

    Thank you for pointing out this important detail.
