Just in: Concertgebouw breaks up its managementmain
Unable to find a capable chief executive, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw has named a three-person managing board.
That means no-one’s in charge.
Both the new recruits are German.
Here’s the self-congratulatory press release:
Following a successful recruitment procedure, the Stichting Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest is very pleased to announce that Dominik Winterling and Ulrike Niehoff will be joining the Concertgebouworkest’s Managing Board as from the first quarter of 2021. Together with David Bazen, the current interim managing director, they will form a three-member Managing Board.
Winterling arrives from the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie. Niehoff, who has the title ‘artistic director, was head of artistic planning with the Wiener Symphoniker.
