Advisory of Artist Change: Conductor Robert Spano has graciously agreed to lead The Philadelphia Orchestra in its Verizon Hall concerts on March 4, 5, and 8.

March 2, 2011

Conductor Robert Spano has graciously agreed to lead The Philadelphia Orchestra in its Verizon Hall concerts on March 4, 5, and 8. As previously announced, Chief Conductor Charles Dutoit has regrettably withdrawn from these performances due to illness. The program includes three originally scheduled works—Jonathan Leshnoff’s Flute Concerto (world premiere) and Vivaldi’s Flute Concerto in D minor (“Il gran Mogol”) (US premiere), both featuring Principal Flute Jeffrey Khaner as soloist, and Strauss’s Ein Heldenleben—as well as Ravel’s Pavane pour une infante défunte. Ravel’s Rapsodie espagnole will no longer be performed as part of this program.
