Just in: Berlin Philharmonic replaces Gatti with Mehtamain
The rehab is not complete.
Zubin Mehta has been called in to conduct Otello in place of Gatti at the Baden-Baden Easter Festival.
WIERD UPDATE: We’ve had this just in from Baden-Baden:
The Festspielhaus and Festspiele Baden-Baden GmbH and the Stiftung Berliner Philharmoniker learn with much regret that Maestro Gatti is not in the condition to conduct the performances of „Otello“ and the Bundesjugendorchester in Baden-Baden and the concertant performances of „Otello“ in Berlin in April 2019. Future collaborations with Daniele Gatti in the forthcoming seasons are not affected.
Er, he knows he is going to be unwell next Easter?
