On Tuesday flew the 32-year-old Latvian accordionist Ksenija Sidorova from her hometown of Madrid to Zurich, with the anticipation of her concert hall debut. With a queasy feeling, because of Corona. And because it was the first Time their 9-month-old daughter at home: "It was hard for me – but the mom needs to hold your music !"
in The afternoon she then rehearsed with the Zurich Tonhalle orchestra and its chief conductor, Paavo Järvi. A contemporary piece on the program, "Prophecy", by Erkki-Sven Tüür, "is very complicated, but it's Fun". The latter was not to be overlooked in the sample: when she danced with her Instrument, as it was 21 pounds, but quite easy. And if you were thrust, in spite of the intricate rhythms again and again, sweeping swing send found.
On Tuesday evening, it became known that a Corona-a suspected case of the Tonhalle orchestra. The concert on Wednesday was canceled as a precaution. And now, since the suspicion was confirmed, closes the Tonhalle orchestra until 5. April. Not only the concerts with Ksenija Sidorova from falling, even järvi's concerts with the violinist Lisa Batiashvili and the Jazz pianist Chick Corea as well as his first Zurich conducting course. For the protection of the musicians, for the protection of the public.
What does that mean for Ksenija Sidorova? She gets her Gage? Or a part of it? At the Moment this is unclear; there had never been such a case, it is said, in the Tonhalle. We will clarify in the next few days, how to handle it.
it is certain that the accordionist is faster than planned to be back with her family. Maybe you will be asked at the airport as on the outward journey, whether it was a typewriter that you have in your box too, might share. You would say Yes, such answers make your Fun. But it is more likely that no questions come up: airport-Smalltalk is not more popular in Corona times.
