Yuri Temirkanov, who canceled the last two weeks of performances with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra after the death of a close friend, has canceled another two.
He will be replaced this week by French conductor Ludovic Morlot, assistant conductor at the Boston Symphony Orchestra, in a Schumann-Mozart-Stravinsky program. Morlot did similar duty earlier this month with the New York Philharmonic, filling in for an indisposed Christoph von Dohnanyi.
For next week's all-Mozart program, BSO concertmaster Jonathan Carney will lead the performances from his seat at the head of the violin section.
Temirkanov, now in his last season as BSO music director, is still scheduled to conduct three final weeks of programs, starting in late-May.
