Carlos Ferreira, a highly rated Portuguese, won the audition for principal clarinet of the Philharmonia Orchestra in London just eight months ago.
Today, the Orchestre nationale de France announced: Very happy to present our new principal clarinet Carlos Ferreira, the winner after 3 days of audition.
On coming to London Carlos kept his previous job in Lille. Presumably that will have to go. But does it make sense for Paris and London to go job-shares on a principal clarinet?
