Best news: Maestro’s cancer is less severe than feared

We’re delighted to report that Bramwell Tovey, diagnosed last month with a rare cancer,  has been told it it less severe than previously supposed and he can return to work sooner.

As a result, Bramwell will conduct the LA Phil at the Hollywood Bowl this weekend and the BBC Concert Orchestra at the Proms at the end of the month.

He has six months of treatment still to go, but getting the all-clear for these two concerts has put a spring in his step and a gleam in his eye.

So pleased for him.

  • That’s wonderful news!

    From a purely selfish perspective, it means that I — and thousands of others – will see Maestro at the Hollywood Bowl next Tuesday evening when he conducts the Los Angeles Philharmonic in a concert entitled “Britain at the Bowl.”

    Nobody conducts Britten, Elgar, and Gilbert & Sullivan better than Bramwell Tovey.

  • Thanks for sharing this great news. I’ve never met Maestro Tovey, but he’s conducted here in Boston a number of times, and at his best, his concerts have been memorable. I’ve heard through the grapevine that he’s considered a really decent human being too.
