Exclusive: Germans dump CurrentzisNews
The French conductor François Xavier Roth is being announced this morning as the next Chief Conductor and Artistic Director of the SWR Symphony Orchestra in Stuttgart.
He replaces the controversial Teodor Currentzis whose financial connections with the Russian energy non-supplier Gazprom are causing increased discomfort in German households.
Roth, 50, is presently GMD in Cologne. He is officially due to succeed at SWR in 2025, but he may take up the baton a lot sooner.
The age of Currentzis is over.
