The kind audience is advised that due to an indisposition Maria João Pires will not be able to perform in the concert with Filarmonica della Scala.
Until the very last we hoped that she could be by our side on this special occasion after sustaining the trials of the last few days. Best wishes for her recovery from all of Filarmonica della Scala.
We thank Maestro Gianandrea Noseda who agreed to conduct Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart's Symphony No. 40 in G minor K 550 in the first part of the concert, and we thank our audience for understanding.
