Fabio Luisi to Step in for Lorin Maazel, Conducting Munich Philharmonic Orchestra at Carnegie Hall, 4/11-12

Carnegie Hall today announced that conductor Fabio Luisi has agreed to step in for Lorin Maazel on Saturday, April 12 at 8:00 p.m., leading the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra in the second of two all-Richard Strauss programs this week at Carnegie Hall's Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage. Due to illness, Maestro Maazel with deep regret has cancelled his professional engagements in Munich and New York this week. The April 12 program is unchanged, with soprano Karita Mattila singing Strauss's Four Last Songs on a program that also includes Ein Heldenleben and Der Rosenkavalier Suite.

The conductor for the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra's Carnegie Hall program with pianist Emanuel Ax on Friday, April 11 is to be announced very shortly.

Carnegie Hall and the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra are very grateful to Mr. Luisi for agreeing to conduct this concert on short notice. Mr. Luisi is currently in New York leading rehearsals of La Cenerentola and appears at Carnegie Hall courtesy of The Metropolitan Opera.

Ticketholders with questions can call CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800.
