It is now intermission time at the Chicago Symphony. Hahn just perform the Sibelius VC under Alsop. Absolutely fabulous. Technically prowess aside her ability to achieve extremely long musical lines is staggering. Amazingly until now this wonderful musician had only one subscription appearance with the CSO twelve years ago.

Listened to this yesterday, and was very impressed both with Hahn and the conductor, Mikko Franck (any relation to the composer?). More than a solid performance, this was well thought through, not dashed off, not a careless note or phrase played. I'm intrigued enough to hear the Symphonie Fantastique soon. Franck is not a conductor I know, but I admire his depth here. Some interesting CDs on amazon, including an 8 CD set of the symphonies of Rautavaara. Thanks for posting!

Given that Mikko is Finnish, I suspect that it is unlikely.

Just finished the Symphonie fantastique, and am here to report that this too is a fine performance of the work. Franck is a superb conductor, with a "just right" feeling to his tempi and shifts from one musical idea to the next. Crystal clear attention to difficult passages marked this performance, which I hope will be released on CD (Yes, it's that good!). Bravi tutti!
