Dutoit said that after the harassment act went through in December last year, “Informal physical contact is common in the art world as a common gesture of friendship but a serious complaint accompanied by extortion or forced physical contact He definitely denied”, but in January this year he has resigned from the post of the artistic supervisor and chief conductor of the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra of London. , The term of office still remains two years. Dutoit studied under Charles Munch at the Tanglewood Music Festival on a young age and continued to guest performances at the music festival thereafter.
