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James Levine has withdrawn from three weeks of concerts at the BSO, owing to back troubles.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.

Just to point out that Jayce Ogren is not an assistant conductor of the BSO. AFAIK, he was the assistant conductor with the Cleveland Orchestra up until 2009.

Whoops, that is completely correct! Fixing it now.
