Ludovic Morlot to replace Roberto Abbado

Roberto Abbado has withdrawn from his upcoming appearance with the SSO.  In his place, the orchestra is bringing back Ludovic Morlot.  Morlot was last here in October when he conducted a concert of Martinu and Haydn.  For that concert, the orchestra was split with the opera.  This time, Morlot will have the benefit of the whole orchestra as he leads the group in Beethoven’s Fifth Symphony and Henri Dutilleux’s Cello Concerto with Xavier Phillips as the cello soloist.

  1. He got rid of the Berlioz overture and replaced it was the Verdi Force of Destiny Overture. Apparently, Morlot is a protege of Dutilleux. I am sure it will be a a great concert. I hope I can get to it!
