Concerted Diplomacy

Diplomacy may be their primary vocation but some foreign diplomats serving in New Delhi have other talents. Take, for instance, the German ambassador to India, Martin Ney who apart from holding a doctorate in international law is also an accomplished flautist. Dr Ney who has performed in New Delhi earlier playing the flute along with his wife Gabriele Ney, also an accomplished flautist, at Bikaner House on Wednesday. The couple was joined by two noted German classical musicians—Prof Gerald Hambitzer on the harpsicord and Bettina von Dombois-Habitizer on the violin—at the concert which is part of the Western Classical Music Concerts the German envoy has been hosting since he began his tenure in New Delhi in mid-2015.
