Mariss Jansons cancels Summer Concerts

 

Mariss Jansons is undertaking a regenerative break on the advice of his doctors, which will not allow him to conduct concerts planned with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra for the months of June, July and August.

The period affected includes two subscription concerts in Munich as well as tour concerts in Ingolstadt (Audi Summer Concerts); Riga (Riga Jurmala Music Festival); Lübeck (Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival); Redefin (Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern); London (BBC Proms); and Salzburg (Salzburger Festspiele). We are delighted to share that we have been able to find three extraordinary conductors to take over these concerts in Daniel Harding, Susanna Mälkki and Yannick Nézet-Séguin.
