Seiji Ozawa, the former Boston Symphony Orchestra's music director, won't be able to lead a pair of July concerts in Tanglewood due to his ongoing recovery from esophageal cancer. He was to have led the BSO on July 24 in an all-Brahms program and the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra on July 25 in Ravel's Daphne et Chloe. Substitutes will be announced.

The news comes little over a week after Ozawa's successor, James Levine, announced that he needed back surgery, throwing his Tanglewood season into doubt.
