This is a research page for the Concertmaster AR.
It looks like we're dealing with 3 different positions, in most cases: Concertmaster, associate & assistant.
(1st) Concertmaster / Leader
Associate Concertmaster, 2nd Concertmaster, Co-Concermaster
||Nancy Wu, The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra
||Georg Liener, BR Münchner Rundfunk Orchester
||"Stellvertretender Konzertmeister" in German. English page even uses the term "deputy CM"!
||Alt. förste k. in Swedish; literally "alternating first CM"
- Wouldn't this be "Alternating Concertmaster", not "Associate Concertmaster"? BrianSchweitzer 06:50, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
Yes, literally, but they use "Associate" in the English description of the job (2nd part of the page). It looks like another word is used in English. IF they bother with a translation. --symphonick 10:21, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
|Alt. Concert Master
||Norrköping Symphony Orchestra
||The Swedish & English pages are not synced, but this orchestra clearly uses "alt." in English too.
|Principal Associate Concertmaster
||Laura Hamilton, The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra
||Boston Symphony Orchestra
||Both Associate & Assistant CM in the same orchestra.
||BBC National Orchestra of Wales
||Eriikka Maalismaa, Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra
|2nd Deputy Leader
||Andre konsertmästare = literally 2nd CM
||Orchestre de la Suisse Romande
||French: premier violon solo remplaçant
||Carmine Lauri, London Symphony Orchestra
So Associate CM != Assistant CM, but I haven't found a good explanation of the differences yet.
Actually it looks like Associate CM > Assistant CM.
- IIRC, we've found the same A > A for all other places we've added both attribs, so at least it's consistent. :) BrianSchweitzer 06:25, 26 December 2010 (UTC)
Assistant Concermaster, 3rd concertmaster
Not sure what to do with "acting"; acting first assistant concermaster etc.
