Las grandes siguen sin clarinete

Mientras de Chicago, Berlín y Ámsterdam (Concertgebow Orchestra) seguimos sin saber nada (todas siguen sin primer clarinete), la Filarmónica de Nueva York, que también pasó por una fallida audición el año pasado, ha lanzado desde su página web un comunicado que aquí reproducimos:

“Musical Director Lorin Maazel, in conjunction with the Audition Committee of the New York Philharmonic, having not been able to adequately reach a consensus on a single candidate for the current Principal Clarinet vacancy, and in order to have a successful 2009-2010 season, have mutually decided to offer the position of Acting Principal Clarinet to 10 (ten) prominent clarinetists, on a rotating basis, each playing with the New York Philharmonic for a one month period.

”The 10 (ten) clarinetists chosen all currently hold principal positions in their respective orchestras and the New York Philharmonic will employ each for a one month period at the salary and benefit schedule currently in place for permanent members of the New York Philharmonic Orchestra.

”After all contract details and respective appropriate leave of absences have been finalized, the formal announcement of the 10 (ten) clarinetists who have been selected will be forthcoming, not later than June 30, 2009, with employment for the first candidate to begin on September 1, 2009.

”The management and Board of Directors of the New York Philharmonic feel that this decision will enable each clarinetist to bring their own exciting and unique approach to the repertoire of the 2009-10 season, and one that we know our concert audience will fully embrace.”

¿Quiénes serán los 10 clarinetistas? Ya los foristas y blogueros de Internet empiezan a lanzar sus nombres. Antes que yo diga mis opciones ¿ustedes qué opinan?
