Maestra move: Basle chief takes second jobmain
The Estonian Kristiina Poska was today named chief conductor of the Flanders Symphony Orchestra in Belgium, in addition to her other new job as music director at Theater Basle.
Some might say she’s collecting jobs just like a male maestro in the bad old days. Others will applaud her enterprise.
Poska, 40, recently received some poor reviews in London for The Merry Widow at ENO.
UPDATE: We have been informed that the Basle job is just for one year. Happy to clarify that.
