Sicklist: Chailly cancels his Leipzig farewellmain
Riccardo Chailly, outgoing Gewandhaus music director, has pulled out of this week’s three valedictory performances of Mahler’s third symphony on unspecified health grounds.
He will be replaced by the incoming m.d., Andris Nelsons.
Chailly, 63, has cardiac history. He will not have cancelled these concerts lightly.
We wish him well.
