Kurt Masur dies at 88Kurt Masur dies at 88
Kurt Masur, the German music conductor credited with revitalizing the New York Philharmonic into an orchestra of international renown, has died, the Philharmonic said. The 88-year-old classical music legend died in Greenwich, Connecticut, of complications from Parkinson's disease, the Philharmonic said on his family's behalf. Masur led orchestras and opera companies throughout Europe before serving as music director of the New York Philharmonic from 1991 to 2002. He was later named music director emeritus, becoming the first to receive that title and only the second after Leonard Bernstein to be given an honorary position.

Carnegie Hall’s wish list for a new chairman
It could almost be a high-powered personals ad: World-famous concert hall seeking new chairman of the board, someone with “a passion for the arts and a love of music” who can “generate substantial annual revenue” and “work effectively with a diverse set of stakeholders.” The wish list comes from a draft memorandum circulating among Carnegie Hall board members that lays out the “attributes, duties and responsibilities” sought in its next chairman. The memo offers insight into the institution’s thinking as it works to recover from the turmoil that burst into the public eye this fall when Ronald O. Perelman, the billionaire businessman, abruptly stepped down after eight months as its chairman.

Seoul Phil maestro quits
After 10 years at its helm, Seoul Philharmonic Orchestra’s maestro Chung Myung-whun has decided to lay down his baton. Citing the ongoing public disputes plaguing the controversy-filled SPO and the continued legal battles regarding the alleged mistreatment of employees by its former CEO Park Hyun-jung, conductor Chung officially resigned as the music director of the country’s most prestigious orchestra. In a letter sent to the SPO members, the conductor stated he could not continue his musical career with the orchestra until its “human rights” issues were resolved.
