To his great regret, Mariss Jansons needs to cancel his obligations with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra for the month of November.
Mariss Jansons is well on the road to recovery from a serious viral infection, but his doctors have advised him not to conduct the upcoming concerts in Munich as well as the tour to Taiwan, Japan and Korea in order not to jeopardize his return to full health.
We are pleased Zubin Mehta replaces Maestro Mariss Jansons for this tour on extremely short notice.
Encore: Zubin Mehta conducts “Explosionspolka”
Listen to the encore of the concert once again! “Explosionspolka” by Johann Strauss II.
“Communication is always important – personal communication when musicians work together. In this case with the Bavarian Radio Orchestra, everything seems perfect.” (Jewgenij Kissin)
Here are some photos of our rehearsals and our first concert with Jewgenij Kissin.
