Currentzis has excuses for Beethovenmain
The conductor Teodor Currentzis has halved his involvement in a Berlin and Vienna Beethoven symphony cycle played by his Russian ensemble, MusicAeterna.
Too busy elsewhere?
The press release says his withdrawal is a consequence of his ‘strained time budget (strapazierte Zeitbudget)’ and a ‘reorientation’ of the ensemble, which sounds like he’s dumping them.
Excuses come these days in ever-more evasive guises.
