Here’s the public version:
(Philadelphia, April 16, 2019)—Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Assistant Conductor Kensho Watanabe have graciously agreed to lead The Philadelphia Orchestra’s April 25-27 concerts. Nézet-Séguin will conduct the April 25 and 27 performances while Watanabe will conduct the April 26 performance. They replace Myung-Whun Chung, who was unable to obtain his visa due to rehearsal and concert schedule conflicts in Europe.
The program will include Weber’s Overture to Der Freischütz, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 3 (“Eroica”), and Schumann’s Piano Concerto, featuring pianist Jonathan Biss, as previously scheduled.
