Leif Ove Andsnes is recovering from pneumonia and with enormous regret must withdraw from his remaining concerts on the Mozart Momentum 1785/1786 tour with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra in France and Portugal. This tour was to have been the launch of his Mozart Momentum 1785/1786 project with the orchestra so it is especially disappointing for him.
MC2: Grenoble, Printemps de la Grange and Théâtre des Champs-Élysées are extremely grateful to Lars Vogt, who has agreed to jump in at short notice to perform the concerts in Grenoble (16 May), Evian (17 May) & Paris (18 May). Alexander Melnikov will be assuming the role of soloist and director in the tour’s final concert at Gulbenkian Música in Lisbon (19 May).
