Renowned conductor Seiji Ozawa has been forced to cancel his appearance at this month’s Seiji Ozawa Matsumoto Festival in Nagano Prefecture due to a hip injury, festival organizers said.

The 79-year-old maestro, known for his energetic style and sweeping performances, will be replaced by American conductor Gil Rose for three performances in August. However, Ozawa still hopes to wield the baton at a show celebrating his 80th birthday on Sept. 1.
