Swiss sign UK conductor for lifemain
The Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, known as the world’s worst managed orchestra, has signed an open-ended contract with its British principal conductor Jonathan Nott.
‘The relationship between Jonathan Nott and his orchestra is so strong that we have not indicated an end date of the collaboration,’ says Steve Roger, the OSR’s current director general.
Given that the OSR changes its administrator every couple of years, non-ending contract may not mean forever. But it sounds good.
Nott, 58, became music and artistic director in January 2017. He also has an orchestra in Japan.
