If the "marriage" comes to fruition, one wonders if Muti would take the title of principal conductor, rather than music director, in succession to Haitink. If Muti actually became the CSO's music director, that could be seen as a slap in the face to New York, since it's an open secret that the New York Phil. musicians badly wanted Muti as their music director, twice, but he said no both times. Plus, Muti seems to share with Barenboim a disdain for glad-handing and schmoozing with the super-rich patrons, which an American music director has to do besides the musical duties.
For those who haven't seen the reviews Muti in London:

The CSO needs a conductor that could live here. Not another Barenboim.
Also, reviews of the CSO concerts in Europe werent so good either.
