Concertgebouw chief quits after just two yearsOrchestras
just as we thought the orchestra was stabilising, it seems the swing doors are still working.
toyda, Artistic Director Ulrike Niehoff said she will leave the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra at the end of this season.
She said: ‘I am proud of what we have achieved together during my time as Artistic Director of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. The orchestra is in glowing form and in Klaus Mäkelä has its next Chief Conductor to lead it into an extraordinarily promising future. Nevertheless, I have decided to continue my career elsewhere and will communicate on this at a later stage. I am very grateful for the productive collaboration with our Governing Board, my colleagues in the Managing Board, all staff members and, especially, all the musicians of this wonderful orchestra.’
