As Andrew predicted at the time we acquired our tickets more than six weeks ago, Colin Davis has backed out of Thursday night’s Orchestre National de France concert. His replacement: Neeme Järvi. The program remains unchanged.
The result: on Thursday evening we shall hear Järvi père and on Friday evening we shall hear Järvi fils. (Second son Kristjan is not presently appearing in Paris as far as I know. Kristjan appeared with the Minnesota Orchestra last season, but we did not bother to go.)
