Hamelin, Petrenko & CSO Russian Concert

Aug 24, 2013

Tune in at 2PM as Marc-Andre Hamelin, Canadian pianist extraordinaire, plays the Piano Concerto No. 1 of Shostakovich, and Kirill Petrenko debuts with the Chicago Symphony in Mussorgsky and Rachmaninoff.  The young Russian maestro this year conducted the Ring Cycle in Bayreuth and became music director of the Bavarian State Opera.
