The latest orchestra to show solidarity with the suffering Dutch (video)main
A total of 46 orchestras have now recorded Soldier of Orange, the Dutch resistance hymn, sending a message of support to their colleagues in Holland who face 60 percent cuts and the loss of several orchestras.
The latest video performance here is by the Israel Philharmonic with Zubin Mehta.
The Israel Phil played Rotterdam this week amid threats of disruption that never materialised. Only in London was their concert attacked by pro-Pal agitators. Sympathisers of the attack continue to pack the comment spaces of the Guardian newspaper.
