Florence, 18 October 2020 – The Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino informs that due to a “witch stroke” that affected Maestro Zubin Mehta in the back, he will not conduct the first concert of the “Beethoven Cycle” scheduled for October 22, 2020. The concert will be resumed on November 3, 2020, at 8 pm. Subscriptions and tickets issued for October 22 will be considered valid for the date of 3 November.
The programming will be slightly modified: the Symphony n. 2 in D major op. 36, will be included in the program of 28 October 2020 and Arnold Schönberg’s Kammersymphonie in E major op.9 will be moved to the concert on Tuesday 3 November to allow Maestro Mehta more time to rehearse it.
