Daniele Gatti leaves Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra1:31, 3rd August 2018
Daniele Gatti has left the Amsterdam-based Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra (RCO) amidst allegations of inappropriate behaviour.
The allegations were first made in an article published in the Washington Post and date from 1996 and 2000. Following this article, a number of female members of the orchestra came forward to allege further instances of inappropriate behaviour.
A statement released by the RCO described the ‘relationship of trust’ between the orchestra and conductor as having been ‘irreparably damaged’.
