It is with regret that this performance is cancelled. Mr Altstaedt is suffering from a particularly strong bout of flu and is unable to perform. The challenging nature of the repertoire combined with short notice is such that a replacement for Mr Altstaedt is not available.

On behalf of Mr Altstaedt and the English Chamber Orchestra, we apologise for the inconvenience caused. Full refunds will be issued and should be automatically applied to your account over the next 24 hours.

And as for Saint-Saëns’ First Cello Concerto: well, romance just doesn’t get more elegant.
