The German conductor Marcus Bosch has brought in a testing company to submit his players to daily checks and keep them giving concerts more or less as normal through the season.
The 70 musicians of the Norddeutsche Philharmonie Rostock will not be distanced on stage, nor will they give short measure. The first concert consists of the Bruch violin concerto and Mahler’s fourth symphony.
The audience, however, will be reduced from 570 to 140.
Whatever, it’s a step forward.
