The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra has terminated the cooperation with chief conductor Daniele Gatti with immediate effect, the Orchestra announced today.On 26 July, the Washington Post published an article in which Gatti was accused of inappropriate behaviour. The conductor subsequently apologized to all women he possibly mistreated.

The Concertgebouw Orchestra’s press release says: « These accusations and Gatti’s reactions with this respect have caused a lot of commotion among both musicians and staff, as well as stakeholders both at home and abroad. Besides this, since the publication of the article in the Washington Post, a number of female colleagues of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra reported experiences with Gatti, which are inappropriate considering his position as chief conductor. This has irreparably damaged the relationship of trust between the orchestra and the chief conductor. All concerts planned with Daniele Gatti will proceed with other conductors »
