Breaking: Concertgebouw boss is gone

Jan Raes, managing director of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, will leave at the end of this year.

The Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra hereby announces that its Managing Director Jan Raes has decided to resign from his position at the end of December 2019. Jan Raes was appointed as general director in 2008 and by the end of 2019 will have led the orchestra for more than 11 years.

It looks like he is being scapegoated for the sacking of music director Daniele Gatti.
