Sicklist: Now Petrenko cancels Amsterdam

Norman Lebrecht - Slipped discJust in, from the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra: Conductor Kirill Petrenko unfortunately has had to cancel his concerts with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra on 14, 15 and 16 June for health reasons. The orchestra is very grateful to conductor Cristian Macelaru for stepping in on such short notice. He will make his debut with the orchestra. The programme will undergo a few changes. Instead of Symphonia Domestica by Richard Strauss, the orchestra will perform Death and Transfiguration by the same composer, followed by Richard Wagner’s Overture to Tannhäuser. The programme before the intermission will remain unchanged: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24, K. 491, featuring Radu Lupu.

May 9: Philadelphia Orchestra Concert

Venue: Carnegie Hall, New York City Date: May 9 at 8:00 PM Philadelphia Orchestra performs Bernstein, Mozart, and Schumann Even while conducting “The Flying Dutchman” at the Met, Yannick Nézet-Séguin still makes time for his orchestra’s third and final Carnegie Hall performance of the season. The program features works that in their own way are as storm-tossed as Wagner’s opera: Bernstein’s Symphony No. 1 (“Jeremiah”), featuring the excellent mezzo-soprano Sasha Cooke; Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 24 in C Minor, with the amazing soloist Radu Lupu; and Schumann’s Second Symphony.






Radu Lupu

Radu Lupu (November 30, 1945) is a Romanian concert pianist. He has won a number of the most prestigious awards in classical piano, including first prizes in the Van Cliburn International Piano Competition and the Leeds International Pianoforte Competition. Lupu's concert appearances and recordings, consisting of a limited repertoire, have been consistently acclaimed. Although trained in the Russian pianistic tradition, he is particularly noted for his interpretations of the great 19th century German and Austrian composers, especially Schubert, Brahms, Beethoven, and Mozart. He is also noted for performances of works by Leos Janácek and Béla Bartók.
