Interesting article TODAY in WSJ regarding $$$ earned by conductors and other arts leaders..........
But you have to be a subscriber to read the article. Here is the teaser that goes with the headline: Even as performing-arts groups struggle, star salaries are soaring -- with music directors making almost $2 million. Can orchestras afford to conduct themselves this way?
I make about 300 bucks a month teaching, did I make the list?
Here's top ones Daniel Barenboim Chicago $1,974,546.00 (includes solo performaces) James Levine Met. oprea $1,912,000.00 also makes undisclosed sum as director in Boston. Lorin Maazel $1,909,155.00 New York Philharmonic Michael Tilson Thomas San Francisco $1,584,460.00
(pssst... is Manny on that list?)
Yes, Yes I see you towards the bottom portion of the list...............''
I don't think the orchestras that are paying 2 mil for conductors are the ones that are in the worst trouble. It seems like its more the mid level orchestras that are having the hardest time.
Is his real nameGerald Arpino and is he really with the Joffrey Ballet? If so he's bringin down $175,000.00 big ones! ''
Along similar lines, one thing that really annoyed me was that the last time I went to the San Francisco Symphony I found that the program that week omitted listing the orchestra personnel anywhere. (I assume they did this to cut printing costs and/or increase ad revenue with one more page of ads??)
But then, of course, MTT had his name and picture on the cover, as usual.
Disparity between them is to be expected, but this is a bit much.
I find that very odd. I don't think I've ever been to an orchestra concert where the orchestra wasn't listed in the program...
