Conductor Charles Dutoit leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in performing the first movement of Camille Saint-Saëns's Organ Symphony. The organ in this piece is elegant and vital in progressing emotions and tonal flow. Dutoit also uses his orchestral knowledge to conduct the Guillaume Connesson's flute concerto, Pour sortir au jour, premiering with CSO's own Mathieu Dufour (flute). Paul Jacobs (organ) will also perform with Dufour, in addition to hosting a free preconcert, in Recital Romantic Organ Music from Paris. The preconcert is open to all ticket-holders.
