Berlin Philharmonic cancels concert ‘due to several illnesses’

Tweet just in from the superorch: Leider kann das heutige Konzert der Blechbläser der Philharmoniker nicht stattfinden, wir bitten um Verständnis.

The longform version (in English):

‘Unfortunately, today’s concert of the brass players of the Berlin Philharmonic cannot take place due to several illnesses in the ensemble and must be postponed to a later date.’

The performance was meant to be:


BRASS ENSEMBLES OF THE BERLINER PHILHARMONIKER:
Sarah Willis Horn

Christhard Gössling, Olaf Ott, and Thomas Leyendecker, Jesper Busk Sørensen Trombone
Alexander von Puttkamer Tuba

Jan Schlichte drums

    I guess the trumpeters were too sick to even be listed.

  • Steve P says:

    Trumpeters are far too narcissistic to be happy with a mere listing: I’m sure seeing the names of other instrumentalists listed at all caused them to suffer severe nausea, hence the cancellation.
    This from a trombone player, by the way.

  • Thomasina says:

    They were too tired (drank?) after the last Tosca…?

  • Hubert van Caravan says:

    It appears that Sarah is bleeding from the left foot. Or is she just “feeling crook”?
