Just in: Three conductors cancel BBC PromsNews
The BBC has notified us that Omer Meir Wellber, Joana Carneiro and Sir Andrew Davis has pulled out of the Proms.
The first two are having ‘scheduling issues arising from the pandemic’.
Sir Andrew is in mourning for his wife.
Ben Gernon will replace Wellber. Martin Brabbins stands in for the other two. Wellber’s absence means that a premiere by the Israeli composer Ella Milch-Sherriff has been dropped.
Also out of the Proms is the Paris Notre Dame organist Olivier Latry.
