Herbert von Karajan, 77, the famed director of the Berlin Philharmonic orchestra, has been flown to the United States for medical treatment, Wolfgang Stresemann, the orchestra's general manager, said Friday.

Stresemann declined to give any other details in a telephone interview and would not say where in the United States Von Karajan is. Meanwhile, the Vienna Philharmonic announced the cancellation of the orchestra's two concerts under Von Karajan's baton scheduled for Jan. 11 and 12.
