A Romanian rescues Leipzig

Franz Welser-Möst has dropped out of this week’s concerts with the Gewandhaus.

No problem usually finding a replacement conductor in Germany, but the soloist in this case is the rarely-spotted Radu Lupu and the orchestra had to be confident he would approve a replacement maestro.

The fly-in is his fellow-Romanian, Cristian Măcelaru.
