Russian and Belgian are named as Gatti replacements

The Concertgebouw has named Dima Slobodeniouk and Philippe Herreweghe to replace their former music director Daniele Gatti in October and November, both in Amsterdam and on tour.

The Russian was due to make his C’bouw debut in April 2019. The Belgian has been a regular guest for 24 years.

    • Makes me wonder if he has half an eye on the job from which Daniele Gatti was so unceremoniously ejected on the say-so of the #Metoo crowd. Meaning no disrespect to Slobodianouk or Herreweghe I would say that top drawer maestros will think twice before sweeking employment with the RCO in future. Reputations are being destroyed all too easily these days.

  • Since we’ll be in Amsterdam next Spring, I checked the RCO website for concert dates. Gatti still shows as conductor for the Berlioz Requiem after the run of guest conductors with the St. Matthew Passion during Easter season.

    • “This awe-inspiring work is in good hands with conductor Antonio Pappano, whose refinement, energy and drama, usually put to good use in the opera house, are exactly what the performance of this French mammoth calls for.”
