Music director cancels Overture on Hebrew Themes

Music director cancels Overture on Hebrew Themes

Slippediscers in the Netherlands have spotted that the Rotterdam Philharmonic has replaced Prokofiev’s popular openerin this week’s concerts with Lili Boulanger’s ‘D’un soir triste’. The programme is being played both at home and across the border in Dortmund. The conductor responsible is Lahav Shani, who is also music director of the Israel Philharmonic.

Was the work considered too ‘insensitive’ for these inflammatory times?
