Musicians refuse to play for French directormain
It is reported in Bordeaux that musicians of the opera orchestra are refusing to perform under the baton of general director Marc Minkowski.
The orchestra has fallen out with him before when Minkowski replaced them with an independent ensemble.
Now they are picketing the house with leaflets that read ‘We, musicians of ONBA, are absolutely not convinced that Mr. Minkowski has the technical, musical and human qualities to lead us as a conductor.’
Minkowski, who has been in charge at Bordeaux since 2015 was lately renewed until 2022.
