Due to continued physical therapy required on his left arm, Lang Lang has been forced to cancel all his concerts until the end of the summer including our “Klassik am Odeonsplatz” concert on 15 July 2017. We are hugely grateful to renowned percussionist Martin Grubinger who agreed to step in as the soloist at this unique open-air event on short notice.
Obviously, the concert’s first half programme had to be changed accordingly and now features some of Martin Grubinger’s favourite concerto movements by composers Tan Dun, John Corigliano and Bruno Hartl.
The concert’s symphonic repertoire with pieces by Ziehrer, Dvorak and Shostakovich remains unchanged to earlier announcements.
