Ticciati Replaced for Brahms Concerts
Robin Ticciati is to be replaced by Principal Guest Conductor Emmanuel Krivine for Brahms’ Symphony No 4 and by Ed Spanjaard for Brahms’ Ein deutsches Requiem.
With regret, our Principal Conductor Robin Ticciati has had to withdraw from the final two concerts of our Brahms Series due to illness. Ticciati is suffering from a herniated disc and is unable to travel so has had to cancel all engagements until the end of March. We wish him a speedy recovery and hope to see him back on the podium soon.
Although it had initially been planned for Emmanuel Krivine to conduct both weeks, he has sadly withdrawn from the Brahms Requiem concerts, due to a scheduling complication.
We are very grateful to the Dutch conductor/pianist Ed Spanjaard for stepping in to conduct Ein deutsches Requiem. He is a regular guest conductor with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, the Orchestras of the Dutch Radio and the Netherlands Chamber Choir. As an opera conductor he has worked throughout Europe and North America, including Opéra de Lyon, Nationale Reisopera (Holland), Vancouver Opera, Frankfurt Opera and Netherlands Opera, in repertoire ranging from Mozart to contemporary work. He is one of a small group of guest conductors currently working with the Orchestra of the 18th Century. He is also very active in contemporary music, as conductor of Nieuw Ensemble (Amsterdam) and as a guest with Ensemble Intercontemporain, Ensemble Modern and Klangforum Wien.
