Morlot dimite como director de La Monnaie
Ludovic Morlot ha dimitido como Director Principal del Teatro de La Monnaie/de Munt de Bruselas debido a disensiones con la orquesta. La dimisión será efectiva a partir de diciembre de 2014, según informa la nota de prensa enviada por el propio director el pasado 11 de diciembre a diversos medios de prensa.
Morlot dirigirá el resto de las representaciones de Don Giovanni que le quedan y también las versiones en concierto de L'enfance du Christ que están previstas a finales de este mes.
Declaraciones de Ludovic Morlot
"It is with deep regret that I announce my decision to step down as Chief Conductor of La Monnaie/de Munt at the end of December 2014.
I am deeply grateful to Peter de Caluwe for having given me the opportunity to be part of such a vibrant, challenging and creative institution. Working alongside members of La Monnaie and so many wonderful singers and directors has been inspiring and led to many positive musical experiences over the last few years, including the current Don Giovanni production.
However, I feel that the orchestra and I have not managed to reach a consensus on an artistic vision and therefore, for the sake of their development as well as my own, I have made this decision to stand down."
Declaraciones de Peter de Caluwe, director artístico y general
"Although I very much regret this situation, I respect Ludovic Morlot's decision to make this radical change to his future plans. It has been a real pleasure to have had him as part of the creative and management teams here at La Monnaie for the last three seasons. His human approach and high degree of empathy as well as his innate musicianship have helped us to achieve so much, including a marked improvement in the sound of the orchestra.
Ludovic's departure offers us an unexpected opportunity to look to the future creatively in the context of the many other discussions we are having at the moment.
I trust that, with a continued empowerment policy we will be able to further improve the human and artistic harmony within the orchestra."
