Details have reached us of yesterday’s court judgement against the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra for the constructive dismissal of principal trumpet, Jon Dante.
Mr Dante was awarded a full year’s salary, plus five percent interest, plus all legal fees.
The MPO and its chief conductor Claus Peter Flor were severely criticised for their treatment of Mr Dante, forcing him to resign. The orchestra went on to fire a further nine foreign musicians, whose cases are pending. The MPO is now subject to an international musicians’ boycott.
