Michael Tilson Thomas
has graciously agreed to step in for Yannick Nézet-Séguin, leading The
Philadelphia Orchestra’s performance in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage this Friday,
December 6 at 7:30 p.m. Mr. Nézet-Séguin has cancelled this appearance as
well as concerts this week in Philadelphia on medical advice that he not travel
for the next few weeks due to sinus-related problems. Pianist Hélène Grimaud is
soloist for this performance; Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 1 will replace the
previously-announced Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 2 at her request. The second
half of the program, featuring Berlioz’s Symphonie
fantastique, remains as announced.
Nézet-Séguin and The Philadelphia Orchestra return to Carnegie Hall for
concerts on February 3, 2014; February 21, 2014; and May 2, 2014.
