German social networks are alive with claims that a senior conductor has been underpaying, insulting and otherwise abusing musicians that he hired for a festival in the Tyrol.
The claims are contained in a local blog. Since the claims are anonymous, defamatory and unsupported by external evidence, we will not publish either the conductor’s name or any link to the blog. Nor do we necessarily believe the allegations to be true.
However, if you are musician who has been invited to a festival in that region, be aware that there may be issues.
If you wish to post a comment below, please do not identify either the conductor or the festival. If you attempt to do so, you may face heavy legal penalties.
