About the Performance

Gold medalist of Asia’s Chopin Competition and a standout laureate of the International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, as well as a recipient of many esteemed prizes, Japanese pianist Hayato Sumino reunites with Marin Alsop and makes his Ravinia debut to perform Chopin's Piano Concerto No. 1 with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. In the second half of the program Chief Conductor Alsop explores symphonic storytelling during the turn of the 19th century, leading the CSO in Strauss' tone poem Don Juan and Ravel's choreographic symphony Daphnis et Chloé (Suite No. 2).
