Daniel Harding has pulled out of  The Rake’s Progress this summer at Aix-en-Provence with a wrist injury.

The Norwegian Eivind Gullberg Jensen steps in.

Harding’s is the seventh major cancellation this week.


  • Alexander says:

    if all good things come in threes will it mean that all bad things come in sevens ? or maybe what seems to us a bitter trial is often blessing in disguise ?

  • John Borstlap says:

    As every conductor knows, Stravinsky’s scores are full of irregular wrist movements, so indeed: a vulnerable wrist would surely ruin the Rake.

  • Olassus says:

    A better conductor.

    Beethoven was going deaf and he didn’t cancel!

    Wrist problems! What next, “not tonight dear, I have a headache”?
