US conductor quits Germany for ‘career plan’ reasonsOrchestras
The chief conductor of the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn (WKO), Case Scaglione, has told his orchestra he’s leaving next August.
The reason? It is no longer in step with his longterm career planning.
There were no artistic reasons for his decision, he added.
Damn, another casualty of Brexit!
(Am I doing this right?)
Almost. His grandgrandparents are from Russia, so he’s canceled
Well to be perfectly honest, when was the ‘Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn’ ever really in anyone’s long term career planning. There’s a space for Tar now!
Oh I don’t know. I suspect many conductors would like to make as many recordings as Jörg Faerber did.
They had a lot of recordings under Faerber released on Turnabout in the 1970s.
It is one of the best chamber orchestras in Europe though..
The article doesn’t say if he is leaving at the end of his contract, but if that’s the case, this seems totally reasonable. People just usually make up reasons why they have to “regretfully” leave a position. Simply saying “This is no longer part of my plan” is refreshingly honest.
The Württembergers are one of Germany’s most prominent “small” orchestras (formerly conducted by Joerg Faerber for a bazillion years), whereas I’ve never even heard about this conductor. Adios!
I purchased a USB-C cable to connect to the front panel of my computer but it doesnt fit. Yeah this article is as interesting as my comment.
