Just in: Anne-Sophie Mutter joins Concertgebouw attack

Just in: Anne-Sophie Mutter joins Concertgebouw attack

We hear this morning that the influential German violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter has joined the petition to the Concertgebouw management in Amsterdam to reinstate two concerts it cancelled by the Jerusalem Quartet, supposedly for security reasons.

Other overnight signatories include Sir András Schiff, Sir Stephen Hough, Pinchas Zuckerman, Vladimir Jurowski and Semyon Bychkov, who is conducting the Concertgebouw orchestra this weekend.

The petition was organised by Daria Van Den Berck, Danny Driver and Mahan Esfahani, with help from slippedisc.com

In all, some ten thousand musicians have signed the two issues of the petition, on slippedisc.com and on change.org.

The damage to the Concertgebouw is incalculable. Had the organisation cared to do so, it would have paid for increased security, as has been done in Vienna, London, Brussels and elsewhere.

It refused, or failed, to do show support for the musicians it engaged.

That is damn close to unforgivable.

The original petition list is now approaching 400 signatories.
