Zubin Mehta was responsable for the rehearsal.

For medical reason the maestro was not able to conduct the performance.

GMD Riccardo Chailly jumped in instantly.


Because of the corona pandamec it was not possible to play infront of live audience.

All rehearsals where strictly under corona protective measures.


The performance itself took place under extreme circumstances:

All musicians including the conductor and the backstage crew had to wear masks.

While it was obviously allowed to sing without masks all artists had to wear masks as soon as they went on stage for bow down.
