Here's a twist: James Levine is going to fill in for another conductor who hurt his back. That's right. Dutch conductor Edo de Waart (below) has been scheduled to lead the Boston Symphony Orchestra on Saturday and Sunday, but he's been forced to cancel because of a back injury.

Maestro Levine takes the Saturday gig, which will include Yo-Yo Ma doing Dvorák’s Cello Concerto in B minor.

Ludovic Morlot, one of the BSO's assistant conductors, takes the Sunday afternoon concert, leading the orchestra in the world premiere of Robin de Raaff’s Entangled Tales for orchestra, Rachmaninoff’s Symphony No. 3 in A minor and Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in E minor with Janine Jansen.
