Denis Matsuev has been ordered to stay home, cancelling concerts in Russia, Israel and Carnegie Hall. An ebullient character, we wish him a swift recovery.

Carnegie Hall today announced that the recital by pianist Denis Matsuev—scheduled for nextThursday, January 30 in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage—has been postponed to Sunday, June 15 at 8:00 p.m. Mr. Matsuev is currently being treated for pneumonia and has been forced to cancel or reschedule concerts in Russia, Israel, and the United States. He is currently in Moscow under doctor’s care and not permitted to travel.
