Just in: Seoul sacks its top composermain
We hear that the board of the Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra has fired Unsuk Chin as its artistic advisor. She was only appointed to the post in 2016 but got involved unwisely (according to insiders) in the intrigues against music director Myung Whun Chung and appears now to have paid the price.
Seoul politics are a pit that musicians enter at their peril.
The orchestra will take a decade to recover from these upheavals.
