The music director resigned this week on the Maggio Musicale, following the overall director’s withdrawal over political modifications within the make-up of the governing board.
Here’s what Fabio wrote to the Mayor of the town:
Expensive Mayor, pricey Superintendent,
it’s with a sense of utmost unease and nice private remorse that I undergo you my resignation as Music Director of the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.
I reached this ultimate determination regardless of the extraordinary, fruitful work with the theater and all of the collaborators – above all with my fellow orchestra professors and choir artists – with whom we needed to face the hassle to start out a coherent creative revival whose full outcomes might have been appreciated solely over time, regardless of the love proven to me by the viewers on varied events and regardless of the plain creative successes achieved by my very own, by our staff throughout the Maggio. Because of this I thank all of the group of the Maggio, to begin with Orchestra and Refrain, the closest to me on the way in which to return to the apexes of the European musical proposal.
A musician, as an artist, has the duty of measuring himself towards actuality in a dialectical and due to this fact essential confrontation, avoiding elitist attitudes, which is why I permit myself to formulate some issues.
The incomprehensible strategic decisions of the previous few days have satisfied me that in Firenze the will to proceed this system began and shared because the starting with the superintendent Cristiano Chiarot, the creative coordinator Conte and with my collaborators and colleagues of the Maggio Fiorentino, is lacking. There’s, then again, the will to provide a turning level of a political nature to the administration of the Maggio, a turning level that may essentially be mirrored (and whose early indicators I’ve seen for a while) on creative programming.
Sadly for me, due to this fact, it’s now not doable to proceed on this route, a route that was mine and of Chiarot, which I want to publicly thank for his humanity and the competence demonstrated in these years of widespread work.
What occurred in these final days can’t be declassified into unusual administration, so after a cautious thought of some days, essential to keep away from emotional responses, I got here to the choice to resign, determination taken contemplating the benefit of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino Basis as major curiosity .
Exactly on this perspective, I don’t really feel in a position to cancel the Florentine commitments of subsequent September each in Firenze and for the tour in Bucharest on the Enescu Competition, an occasion of such a global significance that if it have been cancelled would harm the status and the worldwide repute of the Basis itself.
I thanks pricey Dario, and with you I want to thank the entire metropolis for the love you all gave me. I want Florence – I’m greater than sure certainly – can all the time rely on a Teatro del Maggio Musicale worthy of its historical past.
