Chicago Symphony Orchestra with conductor Bernard Haitink

Lovely playing from the entire orchestra will be found from the CSO in Bruckner’s Fourth Symphony as led by Bernard Haitink. From the opening horn call to the blazing conclusion, it is a dynamic orchestral display. Popular guest soloist Emanuel Ax leads off the program with Mozart’s valedictory piano concerto, and the show finishes with a gentle work by Frederick Delius led by Sir Mark Elder.
