Mariss Jansons Cancels Summer Concerts

By Francisco Salazar

Mariss Jansons has canceled all his summer performances in order to rest his health.

The Bayerischen Rundfunks Symphoniker announced that the conductor on the advice of his doctors has to take a break in order to recover from health issues.

As a result, he has canceled all performances scheduled from June to August. The performances he has been forced to cancel include concerts with the BRSO in Munich, Ingolstad for the Audi Summer Concerts, Riga for the Riga Jurmala Music Festival, Lübeck for the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, Redefin for the Festspiele Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, Londons for the BBC Proms, and Salzburg for the Salzburger Festspiele. Jansons was set to conduct music by R. Strauss, Brahms, Beethoven, Shostakovich, Sibelius, and Prokofiev.

Daniel Harding, Susanna Mälkki, and Yannick Nézet-Séguin will take over all performances for the maestro.
