Claus Peter Flor has been back in Kuala Lumpur for a week, working with the orchestra, refusing to say a word about the nine players whose dismissal he has ordered. Rehearsals have been correct, concerts as you’d expect. Ronald Brautigam was soloist in a Beethoven concerto. Nothing out of the ordinary. No further hints about the future of the orchestra.
But one of the musicians tells us he found it ‘very strange to have suddenly a full house with a lot of Malay looking single males in black suits.
Guess they placed at least 50 Petronas police as audience in case any untoward incident would happen.’
