Hungarian pianist Zoltan Kocsis has canceled his April 26-28 appearances with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and his entire North American tour in April and May because of "a virulent case of contact dermatitis," his agent said.
The BSO said he will be replaced by 23-year-old South Korean pianist Ju Hee Suh in her debut here. She will play Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 in C Minor. She scored a big hit at age 10 when she made her New York debut in 1979 playing Tchaikovsky's Piano Concerto No. 1 with Zubin Mehta and the New York Philharmonic. Tickets are $11-$37.
