Austrian pianist Rudolf Buchbinder has cancelled his appearances with the Pittsburgh Symphony, scheduled for June 13 to 15, due to acute bronchitis.

The concerts are a celebration of the 150th birthday of composer Richard Strauss.

Music director Manfred Honeck will conduct “Don Juan” in place of “Burleske,” the piece Buchbinder was to have performed. The rest of the program — a suite from “Der Rosenkavlier” and Honeck's arrangement of a Symphonic Rhapsody from “Elektra” — is unchanged.

The concerts start at 8 p.m. June 13 and 14, and 2:30 p.m. June 15 at Heinz Hall, Downtown. Admission is $25 to $50, $15 for students.
