Maestro missed: Zubin is out for three months

Zubin Mehta has asked La Scala Milan to replace him for Der Rosenkavalier in the New Year.

He is undergoing a shoulder operation and will be out of action for three months.

Cancellations start mid-December with the LA Phil (no replacement yet).

La Scala has called in Cornelius Meister, who is conducting that same work in Vienna.

Interesting to see who the Israel Phil gets to replace Zubin.

At least two candidates have refused to take calls until there is a management change.

      • Hello Roger. I met with Nancy and Zubin after this Sunday’s concert. He is fighting getting back into prime condition and amazingly did four concerts this week ending on Sunday then was off with Nancy to Israel.

  • Zubin Mehta also cannot come to China to conduct the opera Falstaff on December 3rd, 6th, 8th and 10th, and the two concerts of the China NCPA Orchestra on December 5th and 9th.
