The number of cancellations has reached double figures, leaving the Verbier Festival programme looking more like a fantasy wish-list than a serious schedule.
Here’s the overnight notice:
The Verbier Festival is saddened to announce the indisposition of Radu Lupu for tonight’s concert. We wish him a quick recovery.
At the same time we are extremely grateful to Sir András Schiff who, upon Mr Lupu’s desire, has accepted to replace him in the 4th Concerto by Beethoven conducted by Gábor Takács-Nagy.
