(1st) Concertmaster / Leader

Position Example Comment
Concertmaster Andreas Buschatz, Berliner Philharmoniker
1st Concertmaster Guy Braunstein, Berliner Philharmoniker One of 3 first CMs
Principal Concertmaster Tobias Steymans, Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks Webpage translates "1. Konzertmeister" with "Principal CM".
1st Principal Concertmaster unverifed
Alternating Concertmaster unverifed My translation?
Leader Gordan Nikolitch, London Symphony Orchestra
1st leader Erkki Palola, Helsinki Philharmonic Orchestra


Associate Concertmaster

Position Example Comment
Associate Concertmaster Nancy Wu, The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra
Associate Concertmaster Georg Liener, BR Münchner Rundfunk Orchester "Stellvertretender Konzertmeister" in German. English page even uses the term "deputy CM"!
Associate Concertmaster GSO Alt. förste k. in Swedish; literally "alternating first CM"
Principal Associate Concertmaster Laura Hamilton, The Metropolitan Opera Orchestra
Associate Concertmaster Boston Symphony Orchestra Both Associate & Assistant CM in the same 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.
