Cristian Măcelaru steps in for Kirill Petrenko

12 June 2017

Conductor Kirill Petrenko unfortunately has had to cancel his concerts with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra on 14, 15 and 16 June for health reasons.

The orchestra is very grateful to conductor Cristian Măcelaru for stepping in on such short notice. He will make his debut with the orchestra.

The programme will undergo a few changes. Instead of Symphonia Domestica by Richard Strauss, the orchestra will perform Death and Transfiguration by the same composer, followed by  Richard Wagner's  Overture to Tannhäuser. The programme before the intermission will remain unchanged: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 24, K. 491, featuring Radu Lupu.
