Just in: More Germans cancel CurrentzisNews
The German tide has turned decisively against the GazProm-backed conductor.
This morning the Kölner Philharmonie cancelled his January 27 concert on political grounds. They said: ‘We have decided to cancel the concert with Teodor Currentzis. This in no way means that we do not appreciate his artistic achievement.’
Last week, SWR terminated his music directorship.
Austria remains open, however. The Greek-Russian conductor has a date at the Vienna Konzerthaus next week with his newly assembled ‘Utopia’ orchestra.
