US loses three major pianists to global visa logjamNews
The Boston Symphony has been forced to replace the Dutch brothers Lucas and Arthur Jussen at this week’s concerts ‘due to unprecedented delays in the issuing of their travel visas’.
Local sisters Christina and Michelle Naughton will make their debut in Mozart’s Concerto in E-flat for Two Pianos, K365.
We hear also that the US Embassy in Oslo did not grant Leif Ove Andsnes a visa to play three concerts with the New York Philharmonic Oct 14,15 and 16, despite his submitting a visa application in spring of this year.
This has yet to be confirmed and a replacement announced.
