Preucil and La Rosa have been dismissed from the orchestra. A long time coming, particularly for Preucil.
Norman Lebrecht dribbled that "Preucil’s sacking creates huge issues for the orchestra. Reputedly the highest paid concertmaster in the US, he is a violinist of the highest calibre and a massive figure of authority in the orchestra. He will not easily be replaced." This is sheer nonsense, and proves that either Lebrecht hasn't heard Preucil recently, or that he has no ears, or both. Preucil's playing have been increasingly shoddy over the last few years. In particular, I recall a solo violin part in an adaptation of Beethoven's String Quartet Op. 132 that was so poorly delivered members of the audience looked at each other in shock. As for a replacement, First Associate Concertmaster Peter Otto is a logical choice. He's an exemplary violinist and well liked by both the orchestra, members of the public, and - if I'm not mistaken - Franz Welser-Most.
Perhaps now that Preucil's gone, the string of nepotistic hires that took place, including a member of his own family, can now be reassessed.
