(SF, 03 August 2022) The Salzburg Festival is sorry to announce that Evgeny Kissin has been forced to cancel his Solo Recital on Friday, 5 August, at the Haus für Mozart. As the artist informed the Festival with great regret, pain in his arm has compelled him to take a break for some time, and he has been unable to prepare adequately for this solo recital.

The Salzburg Festival is pleased that Yuja Wang will step in to perform at short notice on this evening, thereby making her Festival recital debut.
