Just in: Leila pulls out of the BBC Proms

The Canadian violinist Leila Josefowicz has withdrawn from the Proms. She was due to give the UK premiere of Luca Francesconi’s concerto, Duende – The Dark Notes, on August 7.

No reason has been given. Maybe she doesn’t like the piece, which has been written for her.

UPDATE: She’s having a baby around that time, her third. Congratulations.

  • From her website:
    “Due to the arrival of Leila’s third son, she unfortunately has to cancel her concerts from August 2014 – November 10, 2014. She will be appearing with the Philadelphia Orchestra the week of November 20th.”
    Ten seconds of “research.”
