Slovaks fire chief conductor and concertmastermain
The Slovak Radio Symphony Orchestra has silently dropped its music director and its concertmaster.
Conductor Peter Valentovič, hired only last year, has been replaced by predecessor, Ondrej Lenárd.
Concertmaster Marián Svetlík was given no reason for his dismissal.
The eminent Slovak singer Edita Gruberova has called the sackings ‘a shame and a disgrace.’
