“PARIS -- A surprisingly different reaction to the news of Daniele Gatti's firing by the Royal Concertgebouw has emerged in France. Some have expressed ‘shock’ at the way the Concertgebouw handled it. Gatti was music director of the Orchestre National de France from 2008 to 2016 [described in that position as ‘a very great leader’].”
