Severe back pain has obliged Gustavo Dudamel to cancel concerts for the rest of June in Sweden, with the Gothenburg Symphony Orchestra where he used to be music director, and in Switzerland with the Zurich Tonhalle.

Zurich music director Lionel Bringuier will take over the latter dates with pianist Yuja Wang (both are managed by Dude’s agent, Mark Newbanks).

    This is indeed a let down; the combination of these two geniuses in this unsurpassable repertoire (Brahms piano concertos) was so full of promise – Yuja being an excellent interpreter of Brahms.
    – Wishing Dudamel a speedy revovery.

    According to reasonably reliable sources, GD’s concerts in Sweden will be conducted by Lahav Shani.
