Violinist Leila Josefowicz was a last minute sub last night in Cleveland for Vilde Frang who cancelled due to ‘travel complications’. We hear that Josefowicz performed the Stravinsky Violin Concerto, dressed in apparent solidarity with the people of Ukraine.

At Carnegie Hall, Roman Rabinovich replaced Tine Thing Helseth with the Orpheus Orchestra.

Who’s next?
UPDATE: In Munich Antonino Fogliani replaces Stefano Montanari as conductor of this weekend’s Cenerentola.

At the Met, Anita Rachvelishvili has been replaced by Yulia Matochkina in November’s Don Carlo.


  • Eyal Braun says:

    In Israel -Lisa Batiashvili cancelled her participation in the IPO season opening concerts later this week(Sibelius) – Sayaka Shoji is replacing her playing the same concerto

  • MacroV says:

    Leila J. played the Adams Concerto with the NSO last week; always delivers a great show. Same dress.

    • Barb S. says:

      Did a little research – it looks that the yellow-blue dress has become Ms. Josefowicz’s a signature dress this year. I noted it first time during her apperance in Munich, early April this year.
