Cellist’s widow asks musicians to stop giving

Irina Zwiener, the Weimar violinist whose Gewandhaus cellist husband, Hendrik, was killed on his bike last Sunday, has expressed thanks and amazement at the outpouring of generosity from the music community worldwide.

A total of 389 donors have given 20,072 Euros to help Irina with expenses for her and Hendrik’s baby, which is due in the next week or two.

Irina has asked the organisers today to end the fundraiser.

If you still wish to help, please consider supporting Henrik’s anti-hate humanitarian foundation here.
