Minnesota Update

Some big news this week from Minnesota and a recap of something important that I haven't adequately reported on.

On that last point, it is a concern that substitute musicians got thrown under the bus in Minnesota, but it isn't true that most major orchestras pay subs and core players equally. The data from Adaptistration suggests that while most Canadian ensembles have pay parity, barely over a third of major American groups do the same.

What do you make of the arguments floated by Norman Lebrecht - that the MO isn't what it was given the resignations of a number of key players, that Osmo having done the right thing, should be a more valuable commodity elsewhere. And that an upcoming conductor would be a better choice for the rebuilding phase?
