Just in: Leila pulls out of the BBC Promsmain
The Canadian violinist Leila Josefowicz has withdrawn from the Proms.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.
