The much-loved former music director is too fluish to fly:
The Cleveland Orchestra has announced a conductor update for February 9, 10 and 11. Christoph von Dohnányi, upon the advice of his physician, cannot travel at this time due to the flu and has regretfully cancelled his engagement to lead the Orchestra in Schubert’s Symphony No. 8 (“Unfinished”) and Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde . Conductor Donald Runnicles will perform in Mr. Dohnányi’s place.
In Boston, he will be replaced by Juanjo Mena.
