Bad day for conductors.
First Jaap is burned out of the NY Phil by a damaged shoulder.
Now Gustavo Dudamel cancels Boston Symphony: ‘It is with deep regret that I have to withdraw from the remainder of my appearances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra this week due to an aggravation of an injury from last December,’ said Dudamel in a statement. ‘I have thoroughly enjoyed the rehearsal process and performances of The Rite of Spring and Schumann’s Spring Symphony with the incredible BSO this past week and was so looking forward to this coming week’s performances of music by Desenne, Ginastera, and Estévez—three composers dear to my heart. With apologies to Boston’s wonderful orchestra and audience, I look forward to returning to Symphony Hall in future seasons to continue our fantastic music-making for all those devoted to this remarkable orchestra! I wish everyone in the BSO family the very best.’
Who jumps in?
