Chicago Symphony Orchestra Music Director Riccardo Muti enjoyed a close friendship with WFMT’s late Critic-at-Large Andrew Patner. WFMT Program Director David Polk recorded a conversation with Maestro Muti about Andrew in anticipation of a public celebration of his life which takes place this Wednesday, March 18, 2015 at 7:00 pm in Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center.

    I am moved nearly to tears. For the past few years, Andrew and I communicated, sometimes briefly, sometimes at length, nearly every day. I miss his wisdom, his kindness, his consideration–the very things Maestro Muti expressed so eloquently. Thanks to WFMT-FM and David Polk for this.
