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