From Bavarian Radio:
Unfortunately, Yannick Nézet-Séguin had to hand over the leadership of the concerts this week due to illness. Thankfully, the American conductor John Axelrod stepped in for him at short notice, making his debut with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra. The program was slightly modified for this reason.
With commitments as music director to Philadelphia, Montreal, Rotterdam and the Met, it’s hardly surprising that Yannick has a lengthening cancellation record.
