Salonen in Sibelius as CSO Moves to Friday!

Join us tonight at 7 as our  weekly Chicago Symphony Orchestra broadcast moves to a new time: Friday night. We're starting with an exceptional concert: the noted Finnish composer /conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen leads what may be our greatest orchestra (the CSO) in what may be the greatest symphony (the 7th) written by Salonen's greatest compatriot (Sibelius). Also, Yo-Yo Ma joins for the Cello Concerto by the great Polish composer Witold Lutoslawski, with whom Salonen worked closely for decades. Also on the program is Sibelius' Pohjola's Daughter and Tchaikovsky's Francesca da Rimini.
