German Chancellor Angela Merkel arrives at a news conference in Berlin on April 23.

“The Chancellor thanked President Trump for his invitation to the G7 summit in Washington at the end of June,” Merkel’s spokesman said in a statement.

“To this day, given the overall pandemic situation, he has not been able to confirm his personal participation, that is, a trip to Washington,” the spokesman added.

Meanwhile, German Minister of Health, Jens Spahn, expressed “disappointment” at the withdrawal of the United States from the World Health Organization, saying that the decision taken by the Trump administration was a “setback” for international health policy.

Other world leaders are also clever in connection with the G7 summit proposed by Trump.

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said on Wednesday that he could not yet commit to attending the proposed G7 meeting in person because of concerns over the transmission of the virus and Canadian quarantine rules.

“There is a significant health preoccupation that we have around holding it directly but there is no question that meeting directly in an ideal situation is far more effective than virtual meeting,” he said.

“However, there are many questions to be answered before we can commit to be present in person and the discussions are ongoing and very constructive.”

French President Emmanuel Macron spoke with Trump on Thursday. The two leaders “agreed on the importance of holding a G7 directly in the near future,” according to a White House call read. But the White House did not say whether Macron had committed to come directly.

Trump first debated the idea of ​​reviving the summit as a face-to-face event at a tweet May 20 shows that it will signal to the world that everything will return to normal after the coronavirus pandemic stops traveling and freezes the global economy.

“It looks like the G7 might be active because we have done well, we are ahead of schedule in terms of our country and some other countries are doing very well,” he said the following day at South Lawn. “It looks like the G7 will light up, the G7 is full, and we will announce something early next week.”

Instead of Camp David, Trump suggested it “might” happen at the White House “but maybe a little combination at Camp David, but especially at the White House.”

US national security adviser Robert O’Brien told reporters at the time that he was calling “a number” of his colleagues in Europe, and that “everyone wants to come to Washington.”

“I can tell you that countries around the world are trying to open up,” O’Brien said. “All leaders hope to come to the White House if we can make it work.”

The G7 consists of the US, Canada, France, Britain, Germany, Italy and Japan. Trump has pondered about allowing Russia to rejoin the group but has met with fierce resistance from fellow leaders.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
