It is with great regret that due to health reasons, Radu Lupu has had to cancel his participation in the upcoming concerts with Daniel Barenboim and the Berliner Philharmoniker on 6, 7 and 8 June 2019. Standing in for him, Maria João Pires will be the soloist in Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 4. The Lisbon pianist has performed with the Berliner Philharmoniker many times since 1991, most recently in December 2017 with Mozart’s Piano Concerto in A major K. 488.
The concert programme, with which Daniel Barenboim commemorates his debut as conductor with the orchestra 50 years ago, remains unchanged. The concert on 8 June will be broadcast live in the Digital Concert Hall.
