Yesterday, I received a letter from the commissioner, saying that the orchestra is being suspended for 2 months, because they has been playing pieces written by Aryan composers. To my reply, I received a hint that the Propaganda and Culture Office has a list of Jewish composers. However, today will take place a concert in accordance with old rules.
