Label news: Decca loses classical chiefmain
We hear that managing director Alex Buhr will be leaving Decca next month.
Alex has been responsible for signing a brilliant new generation of talent – among them the soaring soprano Lise Davidsen, Jess Gillam, Sheku and Isata Kanneh-Mason, Hilary Hahn and Anoushka Shankar.
Alex has been with DG and Decca for 17 years and is well liked across the industry.
Parting company with him a week before Christmas seems a bit … unfortunate.
His departure has been circulated internally. There has been no word yet from the company.
