Message from Ramon Ortega:
After hearing so many wrong comments about why I have resigned on my position with the LA Phil, I would like to write that, on my case, there is not only one reason why I have decided this way. Anyone who lives such an experience will understand that.
I would love to thank the LA Phil for a marvelous time these past months. It is an experience I will never forget.
I am specially grateful to my collegues on the wind section, maestro Dudamel and all LA Phil staff who have just supported and made me have a great time in LA!
I am very sad that it lasted so short, but that is life. I ask for respect on my personal motives.
I wish the LA Phil the brightest future and all the best on their 100 anniversary season.
They are a fantastic orchestra and I will truly miss them.
