Maestro too hip to fly

A candidate for both major US podium vacancies in DC and New York, Semyon Bychkov  was forced to cancel last summer’s engagements with a damaged hip.   He has now cancelled a US spring tour after undergoing hip surgery.

Doctors say it’s too soon for long-distance travel. San Francisco and St Louis are the orchestras affected. He’s still hoping to make Chicago in late April.

We wish Semyon a speedy bounce-back.

  • He is bouncing back already: physical therapy within a day of procedure. The biggest challenge is practicing diligent patience during the process toward full recovery.

  • i hope the Maestro gets and takes the Berlin Philharmonic. In my view out of all the possible candidates I think he is the most qualified and he has been working with the orchestra since the mid-80s.
