April is indeed shaping up as the cruelest month, at least in terms of healthy Chicago Symphony Orchestra guest conductors. First it was announced that a recovering Christoph von Dohnanyi would be replaced by Neeme Järvi April 20-23.

Today the orchestra announced that Bernard Haitink is suffering from a stomach virus and has pulled out of next week’s CSO program. Fortunately, James Conlon was available and will take the helm for the March 30-April 1 concerts. The program is unchanged: Schubert’s Unfinished Symphony and Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde.; 312-294-3000.
