Following Boulez’s Withdrawal, Pierre-Laurent Aimard’s Repertoire at Cleveland Orchestra Now Comprises Mozart and Schoenberg (Feb 16–18)

Pierre-Laurent Aimard’s upcoming appearances with the orchestras of Cleveland and Chicago were originally scheduled to be directed by Pierre Boulez. However, the conductor has been obliged to withdraw for medical reasons, and Aimard’s repertoire at the Cleveland Orchestra (Feb 16–18) has been changed accordingly. He will now lead the orchestra from the keyboard in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 18 in B-flat (K. 456), as well as performing Schoenberg’s Op. 11 pieces for solo piano.

At the Chicago Symphony, Aimard’s programs will remain as originally announced. He will perform the Schoenberg Piano Concerto with his frequent collaborator, Jonathan Nott (March 1–4), and Schoenberg’s Pierrot lunaire with Romanian conductor Cristian Macelaru (Feb 24–28).
