Malcolm Lowe has been missing from the front seat of Boston Symphony concerts for almost a year.
The orchestra explained today that the veteran violinist, 65, has been suffering from concussion after a near-collision with a cyclist.
No date has been set for his return.
We wish him better.
Lowe, a Canadian, joined the BSO as concertmaster in 1984.
He studied with Ivan Galamian at Curtis and with Sally Thomas and Jaime Laredo.
