Advisory of Artist and Program Change
(Philadelphia, April 1, 2013)—The Philadelphia Orchestra has announced a change for this week’s subscription concerts, April 4-6, 2013. Conductor Jaap van Zweden has regrettably withdrawn from conducting the performances due to family reasons. This Thursday, April 4 and Friday, April 5, Philadelphia Orchestra Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin will conduct. On Saturday, April 6, Associate Conductor Cristian Măcelaru will lead the ensemble in his Philadelphia Orchestra subscription debut. As a result, the repertoire has been changed slightly. Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 1 and Strauss’s Suite from Der Rosenkavalier will remain on the program, while Schoenberg’s Transfigured Night will be replaced by Strauss’s tone poem Death and Transfiguration.
Jaap van Zweden remains committed to conducting next weekend’s concerts. Programs for Beyond the Score: Prokofiev 5 on Thursday, April 11 at 7 PM, and Tchaikovsky and Prokofiev on Friday, April 12 at 2 PM and Saturday, April 13 at 8 PM will remain unchanged.
