The Chicago Symphony Orchestra can’t seem to catch a break with its conductors.

Sir John Eliot Gardiner has pulled out of this week’s concerts, the CSO announced Monday morning, due to a recurring shoulder injury.

Leonard Slatkin, a familiar face at Orchestra Hall, will take over the concerts, scheduled for Thursday and Saturday nights. The program is unchanged: Elgar’s In the South (Alassio), Bartok’s Concerto for Orchestra and Stravinsky’s Symphony in Three Movements.

At last week’s concerts, Yannick Nézet-Séguin canceled his CSO podium debut to “rest and study,” and was replaced by Juanjo Mena.; 312-294-3000.
