Conductor Susanna Mälkki has had to withdraw from the LSO concert on 5 November due to travel restrictions. The LSO is very grateful to Stephanie Childress [pictured] for agreeing to step in at short notice to conduct the concert. The programme remains unchanged.

Furthermore, it is with great regret that Christian Tetzlaff has to cancel his concerts with the LSO on 30 Oct, 5 and 6 Nov, as he is unable to travel or perform because he has to undergo surgery. The LSO is delighted that Alina Ibragimova is able to step in for all the concerts. Her repertoire on 5 November remains the Mendelssohn Violin Concerto.
