    Carnegie Hall Program Update: Chicago Symphony Orchestra, April 17

    CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA PROGRAM ON APRIL 17 AT CARNEGIE HALL
    TO INCLUDE WORKS BY CHERUBINI, LISZT, AND SHOSTAKOVICH
     

    Carnegie Hall today announced a program update for the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s concert scheduled for Sunday, April 17 at 2:00 p.m. in Stern Auditorium/Perelman Stage. In addition to the previously announced Shostakovich Symphony No. 5, the CSO and Music Director Riccardo Muti will perform Cherubini’s Overture in G Major and Liszt’s Les préludes. The works by Cherubini and Liszt replace Anna Clyne’s <<rewind<< and Varèse’s Arcana. These program adjustments were made due to Mr. Muti’s recent schedule changes.

    This April 17 program will be the last of three CSO concerts at Carnegie Hall that weekend—the orchestra’s first concerts in New York with Mr. Muti as Music Director. The first two programs are unchanged and include a concert performance of Verdi’s Otello on Friday, April 15 and an all-Berlioz program on Saturday, April 16.
