Susanna Mälkki, conductor
Praised by the Chicago Tribune for her “keen ear, articulate command and ultra-lucid exposition of orchestral detail,” conductor Susanna Mälkki makes her Ravinia debut on this all-Russian program that perfectly encapsulates the “Season of Stars/Summer of Love.” After Midori heats up the stage with Tchaikovsky’s luscious Violin Concerto, Mälkki leads the CSO in a suite from Prokofiev’s ballet adaptation of the world’s fieriest love story, Romeo and Juliet.
