Israel bars another soloist, so Vänskä pipes upmain
The percissionist Martin Grubinger was supposed to perform Kalevi Aho’s concerto with the IsraelPhilharmonic until the Ministry of Hedalth stepped in and barred all entrants from several Asian and European countries from entering the country.
No panic, said guest conductor Osmo Vänskä, getting out his clarinet and playing the Mozart concerto instead.
Those Finns can do anyfinn.
UPDATE: Lufthansa and its partners have suspended flights to Israel.
