During a concert with the Sachsische Staatskapelle at the Semper Oper in Dresden last night, Sir Colin suffered balance problems and had to hang on to the podium rail. Fortunately, it supported him – as it did not with Kurt Masur in Paris ten days ago.
Sir Colin, 84, was taken to hospital after the concert and spent the night there. He was told there was no cause for concern.
