Yefim Bronfman has canceled this week’s Boston Symphony Orchestra appearances due to a fractured finger. The celebrated pianist announced the injury last week when he also canceled his concerts with the Los Angeles Philharmonic.

Nicholas Angelich will take Bronfman’s place Oct. 20-22, performing Brahms’ Piano Concerto No. 2 with conductor Kurt Masur, as scheduled. This will mark the American pianist’s BSO debut. Brahm’s Symphony No 3 is also on the program. bso.org; 617-266-1200.
