Cool Japan / Ailing maestro Ozawa cancels all performances for rest of the year

2002 Seiji Ozawa ラデツキー行進曲Radetzkymarsh Conducted by Seiji Ozawa

TOKYO — Internationally renowned conductor Seiji Ozawa, 76, has canceled all his scheduled performances for the rest of the year due to health reasons, he said in a statement released Wednesday by his office.
The statement said he would not conduct until at least February next year in order to concentrate on recovery on the advice of his doctors.

Ozawa has been in declining health since undergoing treatment for esophageal cancer in January 2010. In January last year, he had endoscope surgery to remove a back hernia and took six months off to recover.
Last summer, he had been scheduled to conduct an opera at the famous Saito Kinen Festival in Matsumoto, Nagano Prefecture, but canceled that due to pneumonia and dehydration. He also pulled out of a China tour in September.

Japanese media reported Wednesday that Ozawa had pneumonia in February and that his doctors advised him to rest. He had been scheduled to conduct four concerts in Tokyo, Kanagawa, Shiga and Aichi over the next two months.
In the statement released by his office, the maestro said it was an extremely tough decision to make. He said that he will devote himself for the next year to rehabilitation and diet therapy in order to regain his strength.

Ozawa added that he plans to attend this summer’s Saito Kinen Festival in his capacity as event general director and he will also give lectures.
Ozawa, who has worked with Herbert von Karajan and Leonard Bernstein, spent almost 30 years leading the Boston Symphony Orchestra. From 2002 until 2010, he was musical director of the Vienna Philharmonic.
