Mikko Franck makes a welcome return to conduct composers of his native Finland, including Sibelius’ spirited Violin Concerto with Hilary Hahn, “the epitome of violinist perfection” (Nürnberger Nachrichten), plus Rachmaninov’s strikingly beautiful Second Symphony.
Please join us in Grainger Ballroom immediately following the concert for a Q&A with the evening’s guest artists or CSO musicians. Open to all ticketholders.
