Haitink Conducts Bruckner & Beethoven

Oct 30

7:30 PM

Beethoven, Bruckner

Tuesday, October 30, 2018

“There could be no more impressive demonstration of modern orchestral virtuosity at its committed best than the pairing of Haitink and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra” (Chicago Tribune). Former principal conductor Bernard Haitink, renowned for his transformative interpretations of symphonic masterworks with the CSO, returns to lead Bruckner’s rich, kaleidoscopic Sixth Symphony. He is joined by Paul Lewis, “a defining interpreter of Beethoven” (Chicago Tribune), to perform the composer's triumphant Second Piano Concerto.

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.
