Verbier is hit by further cancellationmain
While all other summer festivals are proceeding more or less as planned, Verbier has suffered a string of late pullouts.
The latest is Ivan Fischer, citing health reasons.
He will be replaced next week by three jump-ins, so no great harm done.
But questions are being asked why Verbier is easier to cancel than, say, Salzburg, Lucerne or the Proms.
