She has cancelled a Barcelona recital.

‘Indisposed’, it says.



  • If we take apart the curious case of miss Wang I don t think anyway that there will a lot of concerts during the 8 next weeks in western Europe. And that don t concern only Italy.

    • V.Lind says:

      Indeed. I do not blame anyone from being indisposed to fly, go to Europe, or enter a concert hall. Let alone stay in a Spanish hotel.

  • Tomas says:

    One fears that all is not well between the ears… she may need a decent break

  • david hilton says:

    Still wondering in what way a photo of Miss Wang’s posterior relates to this story. I suppose, we do see the back of her, but that is hardly needed to bring the nuance of the story to life.

  • Greg says:

    Surely this is not newsworthy…is it? What about the cancellation of all of her Italian performances by the government?

  • Dave says:

    Nice to see the back of her. Ahem.

  • Old Man in the Midwest says:

    Allow me to say that she looks so good when she is walking out the door.

    If anyone needs the email of my lawyer for #metoo complaints please let me PM me.

  • Sue Sonata Form says:

    It happens.

  • Cyril says:

    Why do you insist on showing a photo of her rear end? Why can’t you treat her like a regular human being? With complete respect?

  • Music Lover says:

    The New World Symphony has asked conductor Christian Măcelaru to step down from tonight’s concert in Miami for merely having a sore throat. Assistant conductor Chad Goodman will take his place. More virus scares I suppose.

  • Don’t get mad :p says:

    What difference is there between her facing the camera or facing away? None besides your perceptual conditioning
