Celebrating CSO Music Director Riccardo Muti

CSO Music Director Riccardo Muti, c. Todd Rosenberg

Friday, January 30 throughout the day

Tune in for this all-day tribute to the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s charismatic and charming music director Riccardo Muti, partially curated by the Maestro himself.

Recordings of his work and of his influences will air throughout the day, including recordings from the 2014 Birgit Nilsson Prize concert that have not been heard on North American Radio. We’ll also hear clips from his many WFMT interviews and the day will culminate in a live broadcast of the CSO from Carnegie Hall at 7:00 pm, where Muti will conduct works by Mendelssohn, Debussy, and Scriabin. In anticipation of Muti Day, WFMT will present an interview with Muti not heard since 1983 on Friday, January 23 at 8 pm, hosted by Kerry Frumkin.
