CSO Resound

Mahler 1

An expert interpreter of Mahler’s symphonies, Bernard Haitink leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in the triumphant First Symphony — the work that introduced the composer’s staggering talent to the public.

According to the Chicago Tribune, “Haitink’s reading was warmly expansive and beautifully played.”

The Chicago Sun-Times noted, “Haitink and the CSO demonstrated confidence, vigor and ease ... and brought the capacity crowd to its feet for a five-minute series of ovations.”
