  • They are shutting down, probably thinking this will be over in a month or two. It might not end soon though. The 2009-2010 influenza virus pandemic began in the spring, increased in strength over the spring and summer and peaked the following winter.

  • I think these shut downs may last for a few months. I myself have lost quite a bit of money by cancelling my entire stay in Berlin & Vienna, cities that do not have much appeal without music, apart from their superb museums. A performance free trip to Scandinavia will have to be the consolation price, provided health remains intact. I think the Mahler Festival in Amsterdam will also be eventually cancelled, but at least Amsterdam is an enjoyable city to spend time.

    • WE HAVE OUR TİCKETS FOR THE ENTİRE MAHLER FESTİVAL MAY 8-18.2020. THE NEW YORK PHİL. WİLL PROBABLY TON TRAVEL TO AMSTERDAM OR THE FİRST TWO CONCERTS. WHO WİLL DECİDE ? THE DUTCH GOVERNMENT OR THE CONCERT GEBOUW?
