Chicago Symphony Orchestra Broadcasts: Muti with New Music

Riccardo Muti

Sunday, January 25 at 1:00 pm

A CSO ReSound retrospective broadcast will feature music by the CSO’s two composers-in-residence, Mason Bates and Anna Clyne, conducted by music director Riccardo Muti.

Clyne calls Night Ferry “a sonic portrait of voyages; voyages within nature and of physical, mental, and emotional states.” Bates calls Alternative Energy “an energy symphony. Beginning in a rustic Midwestern junkyard in the late 19th century, the piece travels through ever greater and more powerful forces of energy – a present-day particle collider, a futuristic Chinese nuclear plant – until it reaches a future Icelandic rain forest, where humanity’s last inhabitants seek a return to a simpler way of life.”

The retrospective will also include portions of Muti’s new CSO recording of Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet.
