Pianist Argerich Withdraws from Show at Carnegie Hall

Carnegie Hall has announced that pianist Martha Argerich has withdrawn from her duo-recital with violinist Itzhak Perlman on Thursday, March 22 in Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage.

Argerich—who was scheduled to perform at Carnegie Hall as part of a six-concert U.S. tour—has withdrawn from all upcoming U.S. tour engagements this spring due to family and health problems.

“I am very sorry having to cancel my upcoming tour in the United States with Itzhak Perlman, whom I deeply admire and with whom I love playing,” said Argerich. “Because of family and health problems, I cannot for the moment travel far and for extensive periods of time away from my home in Europe. Thank you very, very much for your understanding.”

On this same date, Perlman will now offer a completely new program featuring longtime collaborators violinist and violist Pinchas Zukerman and pianist Rohan De Silva in a recital of music by J.S. Bach, Mozart, Wieniawski, Bartók, and Moszkowski.
Ticketholders with any questions can call CarnegieCharge at 212-247-7800.
