Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Riccardo Muti, Conductor


PHILIP GLASS The Triumph of the Octagon (NY Premiere)

FELIX MENDELSSOHN Symphony No. 4, “Italian”

R. STRAUSS Aus Italien

Revered conductor Riccardo Muti leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in Felix Mendelssohn’s “Italian” Symphony, Richard Strauss’s Aus Italien, and a New York premiere by Philip Glass inspired by Italy and written to honor Muti. Mendelssohn’s sunny Fourth Symphony is a hugely popular work, and it serves as a companion piece to Strauss’s rarely heard “symphonic fantasy,” last performed at Carnegie Hall nearly 50 years ago. In both pieces, the great German composers distill eye-opening travels across Italy into wonderfully evocative music.
