Just in: Mirga jumps in for first post-Covid concert tourmain
The Konzerthausorchester Berlin are telling us they are the first to play away from home since restrictions were lifted in Germany.
On June 7, they will fulfil a date in Dortmund with the Haydn cello concerto (soloist Kian Soltani) and Beethoven’s 4th symphony.
The conductor should have been Christoph Eschenbach, but he’s considered at high risk of infection due to advanced age. His replacement, Mirga Gražinytė-Tyla, was one of the first to fall sick back in March and is confident of her immunity. She is also in an advanced state of pregnancy with her second child.
