    Fresh from his Hollywood Bowl debut this summer pianist Behzod Abduraimov replaces Leila Josefowicz in a Los Angeles Philharmonic subscription program at Walt Disney Concert Hall, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, October 17, 18, and 19. Josefowicz, who has withdrawn because she is expecting a child in the period around the scheduled concerts, was scheduled to perform Thomas Adès’ Violin Concerto, Concentric Paths. The piece will be replaced by Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No. 3 performed by Abduraimov. The rest of the program, led by conductor Juanjo Mena remains the same and is as follows:

    PROKOFIEV           Symphony No. 1, “Classical”
    PROKOFIEV           Piano Concerto No. 3
    DVOŘÁK                Symphony No. 7

    The performance marks Abduraimov’s Walt Disney Concert Hall debut. He made his LA Phil debut at the Hollywood Bowl earlier this year when he replaced Yefim Bronfman.
