These reviews of a recent concert at Grant Park contain high praise for Kalmar who chose an intriguing program that contained Bohuslav Martinu's "Memorial to Lidice," Carl Nielsen's Symphony No. 4 ("The Inextinguishable"), Edvard Grieg's Concerto in A Minor with pianist Valentina Lisitsa. (The normally reliable Wynne Delacomma in the Sun-Times wrongly attributes the Nielson to Sibelius.)
