New chairman at the LSO

We hear that principal flute Gareth Davies has stepped down as the orchestra’s chair.

His successor is David Alberman, principal second violin.

No woman has ever held the job, so far as we recall.

  • Mr Alberman used to be 2nd violin in the Arditti Quartet, as fact did the former LSO chairman Lennox Mackenzie. Representing the orch must be a walk in the park after dealing with all that complex stuff which the Ardittis did. I mean, how on earth do you learn the Ferneyhough 2nd Q ?
