Filling in will be Till Fellner, a 34-year-old Austrian pianist who won the 1993 Clara Haskil International Piano Competition and has gone on to perform with many of the world's top orchestras and conductors and to make admired recordings on the Erato, Philips and ECM labels.
The program remains as previously announced: new OSM music director Kent Nagano will conduct Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 27, Schubert's Symphony No. 8 ("Unfinished") and the original version of Schumann's Symphony No. 4.
