Red alert from Russia – big concert cancelled

Tonight’s Russian premiere of John Corigliano’s Red Violin concerto, due tonight, is hanging in the balance and may well be called off.

The pick-up orchestra were hopeless at rehearsal, leaving soloist Michael Ludwig – the Buffalo Philharmonic concertmaster – high and dry.


Corigiliano, who’s judging the Tchaikovsky competition, is vociferously unhappy. Great disappointment all round.
