Franz Welser-Möst’s new battle

The great conductor Franz Welser-Möst, former Music Director of the Vienna Opera and current Principal Conductor of the Cleveland Orchestra, will not be making his comeback as expected. Stricken with cancer, he has just undergone surgery, which now requires rest and treatment. He is therefore forced to cancel his engagements until the end of the year, but as his doctors are convinced that he will make a full recovery, he should return to the stage in January. We wish him a quick recovery.
