The Royal Conservatory of Music regrets to announce that renowned American pianist Peter Serkin, who was scheduled to replace Murray Perahia on May 1, has had to withdraw from the recital for medical reasons. The Conservatory is thrilled to announce that it has been successful in re-booking the originally scheduled Perahia, for the 2019-20 concert season on Tuesday, February 25, 2020.
While Mr. Perahia has had to cancel (also for medical reasons) what would have been his sold out Koerner Hall debut on May 1, he is now looking forward to appearing at The Conservatory on the new date. Original concert tickets are now valid for February 25, 2020.
Mervon Mehta, Executive Director of Performing Arts at The Conservatory, stated, “With over 100 concerts per season, we are bound to run into some health and scheduling complications. To have Perahia and Serkin, two pianists of the highest calibre, withdraw for medical reasons is highly unusual. We are grateful to Peter Serkin for his willingness to join us and wish him well in his recovery. After cancelling his entire North American tour, Mr. Perahia will once again be giving concerts in the summer and is excited to play for his Toronto fans next season.”
