Message from the Théatre de Champs-Elysées:

Nous avons appris tard hier au soir que Matthias Goerne, souffrant, ne serait pas en mesure de vous retrouver ce soir.

La mezzo-soprano Marina Viotti, sœur de Lorenzo Viotti, chef du Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra interprétera les Rückert-Lieder de Mahler.

La complicité entre frère et sœur offrira à ces Lieder une couleur singulière et rare. 

En anglais:
We learned late last night that Matthias Goerne, ill, would not be able to meet you this evening.

Mezzo-soprano Marina Viotti, sister of Lorenzo Viotti, conductor of the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra will perform Mahler’s Rückert-Lieder.

The complicity between brother and sister will give these Lieder a singular and rare color.

Also in today’s cancellations:
“Per motivi personali il previsto vincitore del Concorso Van Cliburn 2022, Yunchan Lim, non potrà partecipare ai concerti con l’Orchestra I Pomeriggi Musicali previsti per i giorni 26 e 28 gennaio 2023. Sarà sostituito da Filippo Gorini.

Go figure.
