- Valery Gergiev is out of tomorrow's Met performances of Boris, ordered not to travel by his doctors. He remains in St. Petersburg.
- Sir Colin Davis has withdrawn from performances at the BSO, owing to "ongoing health issues," which I am very sorry to hear about. He will be replaced by Johannes Debus and Stephane Deneve; Debus's program will be as originally scheduled, but Deneve's will change, with Roussel's Symphony No. 3 (now, that is a rarity!) and Ravel's La Valse replacing Sibelius's Third and Tapiola. Jonathan Biss will still appear in the Emperor Concerto.
