About CSO: Muti, Andsnes & Grieg Piano Concerto
The Chicago Symphony Orchestra presents two Russian works, led by Riccardo Muti—Alexander Scriabin’s haunting first orchestral composition and Shostakovich’s pensive Sixth Symphony, written during a time of prewar tension. The brilliant Norwegian pianist Leif Ove Andsnes, hailed by the Wall Street Journal as “one of the most gifted musicians of his generation,” performs Edvard Grieg’s treasured Piano Concerto.
