Just in: Lang Lang cancels Edinburghmain
Having fallen sick with an ear infection at the weekend, the globe-trotting Chinese pianst has pulled out of a Bartok concerto with the Philharmonia Orchestra at the Edinburgh Festival tomorrow.
He is to be replaced, in a different concerto, by Pierre-Laurent Aimard.
Lang Lang has been the festival’s concert headliner. He’s hoping to be fit for Friday’s recital.
His hyperactive social media team have failed to announce the cancellation.
