Elbphilharmonic Cancels Teodor Currentzis’ Concert

By Francisco Salazar

The Elbphilharmonie has canceled Teodor Currentzis’s concert on April 6, 2023.

The concert was set to showcase Bach’s B-minor Mass and starred Russian-sponsored MusicAeterna orchestra and chorus.

In a statement, the Elbphilharmonie said, “As the organization of concerts with the St. Petersburg-based ensembles is currently fraught with too many uncertainties due to the effects of the Russian war on Ukraine, this concert cannot take place as planned and must be canceled.”

The hall added, “The ticket price will be refunded, ticket buyers and subscribers of ‘Das Alte Werk’ will be informed about the refund process by e-mail.”

This is the latest concert canceled for Currentzis’ ensemble. Earlier this year the conductor Kolner Philharmonic concert was canceled. The conductor next takes the stage in Stuttgart.
