Classic Arts News   Daniel Harding Cancels Pittsburgh Symphony Debut
Conductor Daniel Harding will miss an appearance with the Pittsburgh Symphony in March 2006 because of a scheduling conflict, according to a spokesperson for the orchestra. Yan Pascal Tortelier, the orchestra's principal guest conductor, will replace him.

The concerts on March 10 and 12 were to mark Harding's PSO debut. The rising young conductor will be conducting at the Royal Opera House at the time.

The program was to include excerpts from Berg's opera Wozzeck, with soprano Erin Wall. Instead, Tortelier will lead Hindemith's Concert Suite Nobilissmia visione, Debussy's La Mer, and Mozart's Violin Concert No. 3, Adagio in E major for Violin and Orchestra, and Rondo in C major for Violin and Orchestra. Nikolaj Znaider will be the violin soloist.
