Maestro explains his contract ‘violation’Uncategorized
The German conductor Sebastian Lang-Lessing, who has been terminated by the board of the San Antonio Symphony, has given his version of the infraction he is supposed to have committed.
He tells slippedisc.com: ‘Referring to your post about the termination of my contract by not the board but a few board officers, the violation is: in case the Symphony continues to cancel the concerts, I‘m conducting the #musiciansofthesanantoniosymphony to make sure live symphonic music continues in San Antonio. The event is supported by the San Antonio Symphony league another arm of the Symphony. The standard provision in an artist contract not to perform within a certain time period and geographic range, doesn‘t really apply here. My intention is to support the preservation and growth of the San Antonio Symphony and keep the dialogue as well as the music alive. The musicians sacrifice a lot to fight for this and deserve all our support.’
