The cancellation is due to illness, according to a press release issued late this afternoon.
Concern about Grimaud's health arose just three days ago, when she had to abandon the stage during a solo recital she was giving at Walt Disney Concert Hall in Los Angeles. The Los Angeles Times reported that the incident was connected with a heart arrythmia for which she has been seeking treatment.
Replacing Grimaud at the Caramoor concert on June 23 will be 19-year-old Natasha Paremski, a recipient of the 2006 Gilmore Young Artist Award. She will perform Rachmaninoff's Second Piano Concerto.
The rest of the program remains unchanged: the overture to Rossini's Barber of Seville and Zoltšn Kodšly's Dances of Galšnta. For more information on this concert and on the entire 2007 Caramoor Festival, visit www.caramoor.org.
