(New York, NY; September 16, 2022)—Carnegie Hall today announced that pianist Maurizio Pollini must regrettably cancel his solo recital in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage scheduled for Sunday, October 16. Mr. Pollini is very disappointed that, due to medical reasons, he is required to cancel his upcoming U.S. tour.

As an addition to Carnegie Hall’s 2022-2023 season, replacing the original October concert date, the gifted young Japanese pianist Mao Fujita will make his Carnegie Hall debut, appearing in recital in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage on Wednesday, January 25 at 8:00 p.m. The evening’s program will be announced at a later date.

Updated tickets for Mr. Fujita’s recital will be issued and mailed to October 16 ticketholders later this fall. Those who wish to request an exchange or a refund should email feedback@carnegiehall.org or call CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800 by October 31.

Maurizio Pollini was unable to play his Salzburg Festival Beethoven recital yesterday due to heart problems. He is in hospital. Wishing him well.
