Just in: Pollini’s heart won’t let him flyNews
The Italian pianist Maurizio Pollini, 80, has pulled out of a US tour on doctors orders.
Carnegie Hall today announced that pianist Maurizio Pollini must regrettably cancel his solo recital in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage scheduled for Sunday, October 16. Mr. Pollini is very disappointed that, due to medical reasons, he is required to cancel his upcoming U.S. tour.
Pollini suffered acute heart problems this summer at Salzburg, cancelling a recital with the audience already seated.
His Carnegie Hall replacement will be a debutant, the young Japanese pianist Mao Fujita.
