Conductor Christoph Eschenbach and violinist Christian Tetzlaff have canceled their joint appearances scheduled for this weekend at Walt Disney Concert Hall.

The three concerts, which are still scheduled to take place Friday through Sunday, instead will feature conductor Edo de Waart and violinist Augustin Hadelich. The Los Angeles Philharmonic had originally been scheduled to perform Schoenberg’s Violin Concerto as part of the program.

The piece has been scratched and will be replaced with Beethoven’s Violin Concerto.

Officials with the orchestra said Eschenbach and Tetzlaff canceled because of illness. Hadelich’s appearances will be his first at Disney Hall, though the violinist has previously performed with the orchestra at the Hollywood Bowl.


The program for the concert series still includes Dvorak’s New World Symphony and Beethoven’s Egmont Overture.
