Maestro falls sick, Zurich gets scrambling

David Zinman has pulled out of three June concerts with the Tohalle and – more seriously – from an international conducting course he was supposed to be heading.

They’ve called in a Latvian, Andris Poga, to cover the concerts. The course will now be given by Christopher Seaman, the retired Rochester conductor who wrote a book of tips for young conductors.

We wish David a swift recovery.

UPDATE: And here’s why he cancelled.
