Whoops - and that was that; everything from here on in was cancelled, as countries tried to get out of the way of the new virus, and it’s going to be a longish while, i think, before there are concerts with live audiences again. 

But, the devil makes work for idle hands. I have completed my new book, Not As We Choose finally, which will be out in early June. And the garden will be happy to get some attention. My Probes series too
will of course continue, at whatever pace the museum can manage - lots of interesting music there:  http://rwm.macba.cat/en/probes_tag

(the concerts below may come back onstream at some future point, and we may all be around to honour them, deo volente, so I'll leave them for the moment..
