Seattle Symphony Associate Conductor Pablo Rus Broseta and Nashville Symphony Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero will replace Ludovic Morlot as conductor in performances Sept. 16-24.
Seattle Symphony Music Director Ludovic Morlot won’t be conducting the opening night concert and other concerts for the next two weeks, following a leg injury.
Under his doctor’s recommendation, Morlot will be unable to conduct the Sept. 16 opening night concert, featuring soprano Renee Fleming, and the following week’s performances of Mahler Symphony No. 2, according to the Seattle Symphony.
Seattle Symphony Associate Conductor Pablo Rus Broseta will replace Morlot for the opening night concert, whose program — including Italian opera selections songs by Björk sung by Fleming — will remain unchanged.
Nashville Symphony Music Director Giancarlo Guerrero will replace Morlot in conducting performances of Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, “Resurrection,” on September 21, 23 and 24.
