Maestro is grounded for the rest of the yearmain
Christoph von Dohnanyi, suffering complications after cataract surgery, has been ordered by doctors not to fly long-haul before Christmas.
As a result Christoph, 87 next month, has pulled out of Tanglewood’s closing Beethoven Ninth.
Happily, Boston’s Andris Nelsons is on hand to take over, enjoying free time after his Bayreuth walkout.
We wish Christoph a full recovery.
