    I wonder if they’ll come up with a compromise solution where they’ll find a new GMD after 2021 but still let Barenboim keep his Conductor for Life title to maintain his honour and integrity after the recent controversy…

    ===That will be Barenboim’s future.

    That will be DB’s future at Staatskapelle, but let’s remember this man could guest conduct any orchestra he chooses and play recitals and concertos simply anywhere. So let’s not be too dramatic, thinking it might be end of his career.
