An amusing press release from the LAPO indicates that it's that time of year: Christoph Eschenbach and Christian Tetzlaff have cancelled their planned appearances on January 10 to 12, both on account of illness. In what must have been a bit of a scramble, they'll be replaced by Edo de Waart and Augustin Hadelich.
Also, the Schoenberg violin concerto is replaced by that of Beethoven.
Well - I'd rather hear de Waart than Eschenbach, but I'd rather hear Tetzlaff in Schoenberg over most violinists in most concertos. Unlike almost everyone else in attendance, I didn't care much for Hadelich's appearance last season at SFS.
Moral of the story: get your flu shot if you haven't already!
