Susanna Mälkki & Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Music of Wagner, Liebermann, and Mahler. March 21-24.
Few conductors have so successfully led the CSO across such a wide range of repertoire as Susanna Mälkki over the past decade. In her first Orchestra Hall appearance in seven years, the Finnish conductor leads a meaty program featuring Mahler’s Symphony No. 4., the Prelude to Act I of Wagner’s Lohengrin, and the world premiere of Lowell Liebermann’s Flute Concerto No. 2 with CSO principal Stefán Ragnar Höskuldsson as soloist. cso.org
