Baritone Matthias Goerne Withdraws from Two Concerts on Philadelphia Orchestra Tour

Classic Arts News   Baritone Matthias Goerne Withdraws from Two Concerts on Philadelphia Orchestra Tour
 
Due to illness in his family, Matthias Goerne has withdrawn from his next two scheduled appearances with the Philadelphia Orchestra on its current U.S. tour.

The German baritone was scheduled to perform Schubert songs, in orchestrations by Brahms, Reger and Webern, with the orchestra tomorrow at the Mondavi Center for the Performing Arts in Davis, California and on May 23 at the Segerstrom Concert Hall at the Orange County Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa, California.

In Goerne's absence, the orchestra will replace the Schubert with a work from one of its other tour programs: Mozart's Sinfonia concertante for winds and orchestra, K. 297b, with four Philadelphia Orchestra principals as soloists: Richard Woodhams (oboe), Ricardo Morales (clarinet), Daniel Matsukawa (bassoon) and Jennifer Montone (horn). Music director Christoph Eschenbach conducts.

Philadelphia Orchestra spokespeople have expressed hope that Goerne will be able to make his two remaining scheduled dates on the tour: May 26 at Davies Symphony Hall in San Francisco and June 3 at the Kennedy Center Concert Hall in Washington, D.C.
