BOSTON (AP) — The incoming director of the Boston Symphony Orchestra has canceled a weekend appearance at Tanglewood after suffering a concussion following a freak accident in Germany.

The Boston Globe reported (http://bo.st/1aF1Ydz ) that Andris Nelsons recently collided with a door that unexpectedly swung open at his residence in Bayreuth, Germany.

Nelsons was still hospitalized Monday and doctors have advised him against plane travel. He'd been scheduled to conduct the Verdi Requiem on Saturday at Tanglewood, the BSO's summer home in Lenox.

In a statement, Nelsons said he felt "a great sense of sadness" at missing the concert in Tanglewood this weekend. But he said he looked forward to performing with the BSO in Boston in October.

Health problems forced Nelson's predecessor, James Levine, to resign. Nelson is much younger and is known for his physical vitality.
