Nobility, lyrical feeling and dramatic thrust are keys to Muti’s approach to the Bruckner symphonies. The sound he elicited from one of the world’s great Bruckner bands was lean and incisive” (Chicago Tribune). Riccardo Muti and the CSO continue a multi-season exploration of Bruckner’s symphonies with the sunny Romantic Symphony. Also on the program is the rousing William Tell Overture and a world premiere by Mead Composer-in-Residence Elizabeth Ogonek, whose music has been praised as “lush and enticingly scored” (The Arts Desk).
