Nobody knows exactly how the new season will look and to what extent the scheduled programs will be able to be performed.

For two of Van Alphen's huge season openings, Strauss "Also Sprach Zarathustra" in De Doelen Rotterdam and Mahler's "Resurrection" Symphony with the Macedonian Philharmonic, re-programming for smaller symphonies is inevitable.

We hope and trust that the many upcoming productions can continue unchanged. To mention a few:

- Stuttgarter Philharmoniker with Nikolai Lugansky
- Orquestra Filarmônica Minas Gerais, Brazil
- Sinfonieorchester Aachen performing Poulenc's Gloria
- Liceu Barcelona with Eifman Ballet St. Petersburg
- Berliner Symphoniker in Philharmonie Berlin
