Johannes Moser to Replace Truls Mork as Soloist with The Philadelphia Orchestra, 2/21
Carnegie Hall today announced that cellist Johannes Moser has graciously agreed to step in for Truls Mørk as soloist in Shostakovich's Cello Concerto No. 1 in E-flat Major, Op. 107, with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Music Director Yannick Nézet-Séguin in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage next Friday, February 21 at 8:00 p.m. Mr. Mørk has withdrawn from this appearance due to an injury to his shoulder as a result of a skiing accident; he is expected to make a full recovery in the coming weeks. The remainder of the orchestra's program-to include Richard Strauss's Metamorphosen: A Study for 23 Strings and Beethoven's Symphony No. 3, "Eroica"-remains the same. This concert marks Mr. Moser's Carnegie Hall debut.
This February 21 performance will air on WQXR 105.9 FM in New York and on stations nationwide as part of the Carnegie Hall Live broadcast and digital series, produced by WQXR and Carnegie Hall in collaboration with American Public Media.
