"We are sorry to announce that Mariss Jansons has withdrawn as conductor of both Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra Proms this summer. Jansons is undertaking a regenerative break on the advice of his doctors, which will not allow him to conduct concerts planned with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra for the months of June, July and August. We are delighted that Yannick Nézet-Séguin is available to conduct these Proms. The symphony in Prom 15 has changed from Shostakovich Symphony No. 10 to Shostakovich Symphony No. 5.
