Maestro undergoes surgery after falling off his bike

June 22, 2017 by norman lebrecht


Tonight’s farewell to Linz by long-serving music director Dennis Russell Davies has been cancelled after the maestro suffered an accident while out on his bicycle.

Dennis, 73, is undergoing surgery this afternoon in Linz and is expected to make a full recovery. He will be replaced tomorrow in the scheduled repeat performance of Mahler 3 in Vienna by Francesco Angelico, chief conductor of the Tyrolean Landestheater.
