Riccardo Muti's rounding third on the current Chicago Symphony Orchestra tour that has taken the American orchestra through Russian and Italian landmarks. The tour kicked off in Moscow on April 16 and continued to St. Petersburg. Italy was inaugurated with Rome's Teatro dell'Opera on April 22, continued to Naples two days later, landed in Brescia and finishes tomorrow in Ravenna with Rota, Strauss and Shostakovich.
The CSO website's running a blog from the current tour here so you can vicariously keep up with the trailblazing CSO, photos by Todd Rosenberg.
Update: Here's Andrew Patner's [APatz] piece for The Chicago Sun Times.
