The Boston Symphony Orchestra has today announced superstar conductor Gustavo Dudamel has withdrawn from a number of upcoming performances with the ensemble, on advice from his doctor – due to complications from a hand and arm injury.

“It is with deep regret that I have to withdraw from the remainder of my appearances with the Boston Symphony Orchestra this week – due to an aggravation of an injury from last December …” the 38-year-old Venezuelan conductor has said.

“I have thoroughly enjoyed the rehearsal process and performances with the incredible BSO this past week – and was so looking forward to this coming week’s performances …” he has said.

“I look forward to returning to Symphony Hall in future seasons to continue our fantastic music-making for all those devoted to this remarkable orchestra,” he has said.

Boston Symphony Associate Conductor Ken-David Masur will conduct the remaining performances of the scheduled two-week program on April 9th, 11th and 13th.

The announcement comes the same day the New York Philharmonic announced conductor Jaap van weden has also withdrawn from a number of upcoming performances – due to a shoulder injury.
