The  the Gustav Mahler Music Weeks in Toblach, northern Italy, were called off today.

Likewise the Schostakowitsch Tage Gohrisch in eastern Germany.

It’s going to be a very flat summer.



  • Tamino says:

    Lot’s of time to study and compose. Maybe some Altentotenlieder.

    • Jan Kaznowski says:

      Flippancy aside, that’s a good point. Composers should be composing – now more than ever

  • Alexander T says:

    Can happily live without Shostakovich.
    Mahler on the other hand…

  • Gustavo says:

    Lots of time for walks down memory lane to Altschluderbach.
