No return for Gardiner

After the altercation that shook the entire musical sphere this summer, John Eliot Gardiner cancelled all his concerts and was due to return to the stage in spring 2024. The conductor has just announced that he is extending his absence while accepting full responsibility for his actions, which he says he deeply regrets. The Beethoven cycle scheduled for 25 to 29 May 2024 at the Philharmonie de Paris will be conducted by Dinis Sousa, the young and talented conductor associated with Gardiner’s three ensembles. In Barcelona, Masaaki Suzuki and Peter Whelan will replace him on stage.
