    Dearest American public, 

    I am very sorry having to cancel my upcoming tour in the United States with Itzhak Perlman, whom I deeply admire and with whom I love playing. Because of family and health problems, I cannot for the moment travel far and for extensive periods of time away from my home in Europe.

    Thank you very, very much for your understanding.

    Martha Argerich 

    The recital dates have been rescheduled to May 12 and 14, and will feature Perlman with his frequent recital partner Rohan De Silva.
