Dave Brubeck and Others Cancel


Usually, it's the singers. But so far in this young season several instrumentalists have given notice.

Dave Brubeck won't be at the Kimmel Center Oct. 26. He is "currently undergoing diagnosis testing, the results of which are not currently available," a Kimmel release says. The concert won't be rescheduled.

Citing medical reasons, the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society says Ivan Moravec has canceled his Oct. 19 recital. As sorry as we are not to be hearing the quietly legendary pianist, his replacement eases the pain. It's Till Fellner (pictured), the Austrian pianist who impressed us in recordings and who will be making his Philadelphia debut with this concert (same date) at the Kimmel's Perelman Theater. 

Metropolitan Opera Orchestra principal hornist Julie Landsman has been sidelined and won't be playing in the Brahms Horn Trio with Astral Artists at its Nov. 13 Brahmsathon. She was nice enough to arrange for a sub herself: Philadelphia Orchestra principal Jennifer Montone.
