Slatkin Replaces Gatti in Chicago Symphony Concerts

Classic Arts News   Slatkin Replaces Gatti in Chicago Symphony Concerts
 
Conductor Daniele Gatti has withdrawn from four performances with the Chicago Symphony because his mother is ill, the CSO announced. Leonard Slatkin, music director of the National Symphony, has agreed to fill in.

The affected concerts are tonight, tomorrow afternoon, April 16, and April 19.

Mendelssohn's Hebrides Overture will replace Beethoven's Coriolan Overture; the remainder of the program remains the same: Berg's Violin Concerto, with soloist Julian Rachlin, and Schumann's Third Symphony ("Rhenish").

Gatti still intends to travel to Chicago for two concerts on April 21 and 22, according to the orchestra.
