Nicolas Altstaedt has cancelled his solo spot with the Berlin Phil this Saturday ‘due to illness’.
Press release: As a result, the Cello Concerto No. 1 in A minor op. 33 by Camille Saint-Saëns will not be part of the broadcast and will not be substituted by another work.
They have four days to find another cellist, and clearly they can’t.
I’ve got one living just across the road. He could be there by teatime.
