“The passion and dramatic verve Riccardo Muti masterfully elicited … is simply magnificent,” said NPR of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra’s music director. One of the legendary Verdi conductors, he conducts the dramatic overture to I vespri Siciliani. While Verdi sizzles, Brahms’s Symphony No. 2 charms with its warm, flowing melodies, and radiant brass-drenched finale.
