In the small print of the Boston Symphony Orchestra’s condemnation of Dutoit’s sexual harassment of a temporary staff member, the orchestra has clawed back the Koussevitsky Award it gave to Dutoit just two years ago.
The BSO maintains that it knew nothing of allegations against Dutoit before Slipped Disc published Fiona Allan’s account. Ms Allan, however, reported her distress to a BSO executive at the time. That contradiction remains unresolved in the independent investigator’s report.
The executive concerned retired from the BSO in the past two years.
