Rotterdam releases two veteran horns

From the Rotterdam Philharmonic:

Two of our hornists say goodbye to the orchestra at the end of May. Martin van de Merwe and Jos Buurman played with us for respectively 45 and 38 years. We will of course miss them on as well as off the stage. Our magazine Intrada interviewed them here.

  • “Releases” implies they were fired (at least on my side of the pond). Looks like they just retiring after very long tenures.

  • First time I’ve seen retirement referred to as being “released”, though having recently retired I can’t gainsay the connotations.
