Cello Change Announcement / Vocal Change Announcement

San Francisco Symphony has announced a couple of soloist changes for the next few weeks of concerts. One was announced last week, but I let it slide.

  • In Krzysztof UrbaƄski's upcoming program, Oct. 19-21, Joshua Roman will play the Dvorak Cello Concerto, replacing Sol Gabetta, whose newborn is "unexpectedly unable to travel with her."
  • In MTT's Thanksgiving week program, Nov. 24-26, mezzo Isabel Leonard will sing in Mahler's Fourth Symphony, where she replaces Susanna Philips, and additional works to be announced. A mezzo in the Mahler is somewhat unusual. Berg's "Seven Early Songs" will evidently no longer be on the program.
