That’s all they’re saying.

  • OMG it’s a crisis? That an employee leaves a job, for any of various reasons? It happens all the time in workplaces all over the world. It’s not a crisis. The BachArchiv will find another director. Maybe “that’s all they’re saying” because it is a personnel matter and none of our business.”

  • She found a bill for overdue salary together with an angry letter by JS Bach which is still not paid and did not want to be associated with such humiliating failure vis à vis the greatest composer of history.

  • I’m not at all sure in what way this constitutes a “crisis”. One may reasonably assume that a replacement will be appointed, and I cannot think there is any shortage of candidates.
