When the soloist goes off to have a baby

Just in from Mats A. Johansson in Vienna:

vienna srso


So, 45 min before the concert the soloist gets a call that his wife is having their baby in London, and he is on the first flight. What does the Swedish Radio Symphony orchestra do? They move Heldenleben first in the concert and throw in Mahler 1 after the break. You guys are true heroes (especially Hans Larsson) and you makes me miss Sweden so much! This is the best Mahler I have heard in Vienna!

(conductor: Daniel Harding)
