Wanted: Conductor, Must Know Mahler 7th and Harbison Double Concerto
James Levine has withdrawn from three weeks of concerts at the BSO, owing to back troubles. Jayce Ogren takes over a program that includes the world premiere of a new song cycle by Peter Lieberson; Rafael Fruhbeck de Burgos takes over performances of Elijah in Boston and at Carnegie Hall.
But the conductor for Mahler's 7th and John Harbison's Double Concerto for Violin and Cello has yet to be determined.
