A quarter of a year ago, the epidemiologist and the social physician Stefan said Willich of the Charité hospital in Berlin this newspaper: "We need to find it normal to operate in concert for some time – we're talking a minimum of many months – in the case of orchestras on the stage, not as a hundred people, but maybe only 65 looks. We do well with these changes and say: Such is life now for a while.“
A mass for five voices
In Salzburg is the life, at least on the podium, so that there is no pandemic.

Nono's setting of Cesare Paveses poem "Sarà dolce tacere" spreads the sound extremely and announces the old Covenant, as to the analogy between music and language, in image, gesture and breath.
