CARNEGIE HALL PRESENTS

Performance Friday, January 30, 2015 | 8 PM

Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Stern Auditorium / Perelman Stage
Its lush harmonies and shimmering orchestral colors makes Debussy’s La mer one of the great musical portraits of the sea and among the most popular works in the orchestral repertoire. Scriabin’s newfound mysticism and fascination with touching all the senses in a musical work is at the core of his Symphony No. 3, “The Divine Poem.” The extravagantly scored symphony has an intoxicating richness of sound.
