Malkki's "Impressive" CSO Concert, Sunday

Join us Sunday at 2PM to hear Susanna Mälkki, the Finnish conductor who recently became the first woman ever to conduct at La Scala (they are inviting her back), in what critics called "easily the most impressive" Chicago Symphony debut of recent seasons. She conducts Debussy's La Mer (a specialty of hers), music for Shakespeare's The Tempest by her countryman Sibelius,  and .…but all shall be well  by the noted English composer Thomas Adès. And MacArthur "genius" Leila Josefowicz joins as soloist in Stravinsky's Violin Concerto.
