Statement of the German clarinet-society

If the information is correct that the C-4 professorship for clarinet at
the college of music in Trossingen shall be taken by a musician who
advocates the French fingering system,<<<the German clarinet-society,
represented by its chair, would like to express their concern and urge
the nomination commission to rethink such a decision.>>>

If the college of music stayed with this decision, it wouldn't be
attractive anymore for students playing the German fingering system.
Furthermore, there exists the danger that students possibly would become
influenced to switch to the French system and thus would deprive
themselves of their chances to be accepted into a German orchestra. I
refer you to the extensive report that the clarinet section of the
Berlin Philharmonic has written and has been signed by many noted
clarinets. I would like to emphasize once again that <<<we value the French
system and its excellent representatives just as much as those of the
German system.>>>

<<<These two statements seem to contradict each other wouldn`t you say? >>>
German illogic?

No, I don't think they contradict. Generally spoken: One can value two
different things on the same level, but nevertheless there maybe
reasons to prefer one of these things in a special context.
