Here is the list of changes by this cancellation.

The master class of Mr. Caroli is cancelled too.

In addition, violinist Ms. Akiko Yamada plays only at the opening concert due to her illness. The other pieces planed with her will be performed by her younger sister Ms. Tomoko Yamada.

We apologize for this inconvenience, and would like to ask your understanding. Mr. Masumoto and Ms. Tomoko Yamada are also excellent players, so we wish you would enjoy their music.
