Sicklist: Jansons is out for a month. Mehta steps in

Mariss Jansons, 75, is suffering from a viral infection and has been ordered a month’s rest.

His Bavarian Radio concerts in November will be taken over in Munich by Simone Young, Cristian Macelaru and Manfred Honeck.

But there’s also an Asian tour, and Asian promoters won’t accept any sub they haven’t heard of for at least 30 years.

Step up Zubin Mehta, 82, freshly clear of cancer and happy to oblige.

    I wonder if these are the same promoters who, earlier this century, wanted, in their quest for artists who had been around for at least thirty years, to stage an arena style production of Aïda in south east Asia with Jessye Norman, Placido Domingo (as Radames) and Fiorenza Cossotto?
