Venezuelan conductor Gustavo Dudamel has pulled out of an upcoming series of performances with the New York Philharmonic after he was struck down with a severe bout of influenza.
The musician had been due to lead the city orchestra at Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center in Manhattan from Thursday (27Mar14) through to Saturday (29Mar14), but he has been forced to bow out of the shows due to illness.
His spokeswoman, Mary Lou Falcone, reveals he had struggled through a gig in Boston, Massachusetts on Sunday (23Mar14) with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, but was "in bad shape".
Dudamel has since returned to his L.A. home to recover from the flu, leaving Manfred Honeck, the music director of the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, to step in as his replacement.
