The city of Munich has let it be known that Lorenz Nasturica-Herschcowici ceased to be concertmaster of the Philharmonic from the end of last month.

The Romanian violinist, 60, was a confidant of the sacked conductor and toured with him in Russia during the war against Ukraine.

The city has not specifically said he was fired but it ‘thanked Nasturica-Herschcowici ‘for 30 valuable years as concertmaster of the Munich Philharmonic’ and wished him all the best for the future.

The next concertmaster had better be apolitical.
