About The Artist

James Conlon, music director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s summer residency at Ravinia, leads soloists from that illustrious ensemble in two works so flush with late-Romantic melody and lyricism that the fewer than 20 musicians will sound like a full orchestra. Wagner wrote the Siegfried Idyll as a birthday present for his wife, and in the Martin Theatre you can be as close to the music as she was at its first performance in their home.
