A misleading headline in the Star-Tribune - ‘Orchestra must return soon, says Vanska’ – shows no softening of the 11-month lockout.
There been no new statement from the music director. Osmo Vanska said in the past that the orch must be ready to play by September 30 to fulfil a Carnegie Hall date if he’s to continue as music director.
So will he be there if the dispute is settled? Michael Henson, the orch president, said tersely: ‘Osmo is the only person who can answer that question.’
He sounds very much like UK football managers as the transfer deadline approaches.
