MOSCOW, September 29 (Itar-Tass) — Era of the musicians like conductor Mark Gorenshtein has gone, Russian Culture Minister Alexander Avdeyev told Itar-Tass Thursday.
"Mark Gorenshtein is good enough as a performer and conductor," Avdeyev said in a comment on his own order to fire Gorenshtein from the position of chief conductor of Russia's State Academic Symphony Orchestra. "However, he happened to be totally unprepared for leading as highly-rated an orchestra as this one."
"His method of humiliating human dignity is unacceptable and the epoch of musicians of his kind is gone forever," he said.
