Just in: Rattle undergoes surgeryOrchestras
Message from the Berlin Phil:
Sir Simon Rattle has unfortunately had to cancel his appearances conducting the 16-18 February concerts as he has to undergo a minor surgical procedure during that week.
The Berliner Philharmoniker are very grateful to Matthias Pintscher for taking over the concerts as part of the Biennale.
Bernd Alois Zimmermann Musique pour les soupers du Roi Ubu
Bohuslav Martinů Rhapsody-Concerto for viola and orchestra
György Ligeti Requiem
What a fantastic program!!
Nobody mention the jibby jab
Norman, my masters taught me that there is no minor surgical procedure.
Except for defloration.
And who might the viola soloist be?
The article headline says he has undergone surgery. The article says he is to undergo it. Which is it?
Wishing maestro Rattle a speedy recovery and maestro Pintscher toi toi for a wonderful concert!
Poor time management.
by God, you mean? Tell him!
Taking note here, to schedule my diseases carefully and professionally in the future.
