Pour le Maitre
A press release about an upcoming performance by Pierre-Laurent Aimard contains this:
Pierre-Laurent Aimard’s upcoming appearances with the orchestras of Cleveland and Chicago were originally scheduled to be directed by Pierre Boulez. However, the conductor has been obliged to withdraw for medical reasons....
And the news eventually arrived that he'd also withdrawn from scheduled performances in Chicago. Best wishes to Maitre Boulez for a swift and complete recovery.
