Zhang makes unexpected Cleveland debutmain
The New Jersey music director has jumped in for Semyon Bychkov.
[Monday, February 13, 2017] The Cleveland Orchestra has announced a conductor update for the February 16, 17, and 18 performances at Severance Hall. Semyon Bychkov, upon the advice of his physician, cannot travel at this time due to the stomach flu and has regretfully cancelled his engagement to lead the Orchestra in Mozart’s Concerto in E-flat major for Two Pianos and Tchaikovsky’s Manfred Symphony. Conductor Xian Zhang has graciously agreed to perform in Mr. Bychkov’s place.
