… I blogged about Mathieu Dufour, and his hopping over to the LA Phil, taking leave from Chicago Symphony Orchestra? I wrote about it here, here, and here?

Well, guess things in LA didn’t thrill him:

Mr. Dufour has decided to stay at his Midwestern job, The Chicago Sun-Times reported on Tuesday, quoting him as saying that the Los Angeles Philharmonic has “no tradition there — no tradition of sound and no tradition of working together as a dedicated ensemble.” He added, “Maybe they will have that someday in the future.” Los Angeles has fine musicians, he said. “But we have achieved a very strong common purpose and set of aims in Chicago that they do not have or do not yet have there.”
