Bereaved Kavakos cancels concert

We hear that the Greek virtuoso Leonidas Kavakos has withdrawn from a Berlin concert due to ‘a very close family bereavement’. He is replaced at the DSO on Sunday by Christian Tetzlaff.

We send Leonidas our condolences.

  • I think he cancelled in Madrid (12 – 14 May) for the same reason? Nicola Benedetti stood in for him at very short notice to play the Brahms VC.

    • I assumed that the careful wording (‘a very close family bereavement’) meant either that he did not want this to be widely known or that it refers to another death.
