Polish composer and conductor Krzysztof Penderecki was scheduled to conduct his 8th symphony and his 2d Violin Concerto at the Enescu Festival in Bucharest yesterday evening with the Romanian National Radio Orchestra and Choir. On Friday night, the musician had to be hospitalized and subsequently was too weak to conduct the concert which he attended, greeting the audience from a box in the hall.
