Pianist Licad hurts foot Peabody grad steps in; BSO update


Filipino pianist Cecile Licad has sprained an ankle and will be unable to perform tonight's concert for the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra's Summer MusicFest, BSO officials announced Monday.

Pianist Brian Ganz will take her place on the program, playing Schubert's "Trout" Quintet with guest musicians, including artistic director Pinchas Zukerman on viola.

He also will accompany soprano Janice Chandler in the song "Die Forelle" ("The Trout"), whose tune is used in the quintet and gives the chamber work its name.

Ganz, a graduate of the Peabody Conservatory of Music and student of Leon Fleisher, teaches piano at St. Mary's College. He has placed in the international Marguerite Long/Jacques Thibaud and Queen Elisabeth music competitions.
