The 89-year-old Dutch conductor will take a complete break from his conducting duties for the 2019-2020 season
Bernard Haitink, who turns 90 this March, is to take a sabbatical from his conducting duties for the 2019-2020 season.
The Dutch conductor suffered a serious fall last June while conducting the Concertgebouw, followed by another in Chicago.
He will continue to fulfil engagements until the summer, including a Bruckner 4th with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, as his management Askonas Holt has indicated, and is expected to return to his schedule in the summer of 2020.
