Bass-baritone Thomas Quasthoff has withdrawn from a scheduled appearance with the MET Orchestra at Carnegie Hall on January 30. Mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter will step in for him.

Quastgoff had a scheduling conflict, according to an announcement from Carnegie Hall

The Schubert lieder that were to have been sung by Quasthoff have been replaced on the evening's program with Ravel's Sh_h_razade, with von Otter as soloist. The rest of the program remains the same: the overture to Weber's Der Freisch‹tz, Webern's Symphony, Dvoršk's Symphony No. 8, and Charles Wuorinen's Grand Bamboula.

The MET Orchestra is the concert-giving alter ego of the Metropolitan Opera orchestra, and is conducted by the Met's music director, James Levine. Its 2004-05 season also includes performances at Carnegie Hall on January 9 and 23.
