Mirga’s make-do orchestra saves Salzburg’s War RequiemNews
The Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra stepped in this weekend where the quarantine-anxious City of Birmingham SO feared to tread.
With considerable help from the foreign ministry in Vienna, the Mahler orchestra brought in 91 musicians from 18 countries across Europe.
Rehearsal time was tight but the performance was excellent.
