Mark Elder
(c) Hallé Orchestra

British conductor Mark Elder, 72, who already stopped conducting due to pain in his neck in July, will not return to the podium until end of November. The Manchester based orchestra The Hallé, where Elder is Music Director, tweeted that « Following surgery in the middle of August to release a trapped nerve in his neck, and under medical advice, Sir Mark Elder has very reluctantly decided to cancel his forthcoming engagements. This will give him time for the fullest possible recuperation. He will return to the podium Sunday 24 November 2019 to conduct a performance of the Bach B minor Mass with the Hallé. »
