Why See Chicago Symphony Orchestra: Muti, Beethoven, and Uchida?
With guest star Dame Mitsuko Uchida
Italian maestro Riccardo Muti is currently the CSO's resident conductor, and leads this season's exciting performances for both newcomers and regular patrons alike. This concert series features four works including a world premiere, with a special guest performance by legendary pianist Dame Mitsuko Uchida. The pieces performed at this limited engagement are Rossini's Overture to La scala di seta; Beethoven's Piano Concerto No. 3, Samuel Adams's world premiere and Schumann's Symphony No. 4.
Born in Japan and brought up in Great Britain, Dame Mitsuko studied under Richard Hauser at the Vienna Academy of Music, due to her family's ambassadorial ties. Known primarily for her fluent interpretation of the classical masters, including Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin, Debussy and Schoenberg. Between 2002 to 2007 she was appointed as artist-in-residence at Cleveland Orchestra, performing all of Mozart's piano concertos to great acclaim; 2009 saw her receive the highest honor in Britain, a damehood for her unique contribution to music and her unrelenting passion in fostering new talent.
Opening night: 16 March 2017
