Robin Usher of Australia’s “The Age” newspaper reports that

a secret revolt by leading Melbourne Symphony musicians led to the decision by the orchestra’s management to terminate the contract of its chief conductor and artistic director, Oleg Caetani.

Unfamiliar with the work of Mr. Caetani, I did a bit of sleuthing.  OK now, seriously — does anybody else find this video unintentionally hilarious?  It exists in French, Italian, English and German… I’m going with the latter (lattest?) just because that’s the first one I found and I just like it the best.  Also, isn’t the unintentional hilarity of this video somehow amplified by its being on YouTube?  Or is it just me?
