    Kurt Masur has withdrawn from the upcoming Boston Symphony Orchestra (BSO) performance of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis on Tuesday, March 6 at 8:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage due to his current physical condition and the great demands of this particular piece. Although Mr. Masur has had to cancel this performance, he will proceed with plans to lead concerts with the Israel Philharmonic in Israel, the Bayerische Staatskapelle in Munich, Germany, the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra in Shanghai, China and the Orchestre National de France in Paris, France in March and April. A conductor for the March 6 concert will be announced in coming days. The program remains unchanged with soprano Christine Brewer, mezzo-soprano Michelle DeYoung, tenor Simon O’Neill, bass-baritone Eric Owens, and the Tanglewood Festival Chorus under the direction of John Oliver.

    Following this March 6 performance, the Boston Symphony Orchestra returns to Carnegie Hall for two additional evenings. On Wednesday, March 7 at 8:00 p.m., Christoph Eschenbach leads the BSO in Berlioz’s Overture to Benvenuto Cellini and Symphonie fantastique, as well as Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G with guest soloist Cédric Tiberghien. Stéphane Denève conducts the orchestra in Ravel’s Ma Mère l'Oye (Mother Goose) Suite, Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 5, and Stravinsky’s Concerto for Piano and Winds featuring soloist Peter Serkin on Friday, March 9 at 7:30 p.m. In addition, on Thursday, March 8 at 8:00 p.m., conductor Keith Lockhart and the Boston Pops perform the New York premiere of Chris Brubeck’s Travels in Time for Three featuring the acclaimed trio Time for Three.
