Samuel Adams: New Work [World Premiere, CSO Commission]

Riccardo Muti leads Rossini’s Overture to La scala di seta and Beethoven’s Third Piano Concerto, performed by Mitsuko Uchida, an artist who “guides the audience through every conceivable emotion” (The Telegraph). Muti closes the program with a world premiere by CSO Mead Composer-in-Residence Samuel Adams and Schumann’s Fourth Symphony, in which the composer departed from the standard symphonic form to make a groundbreaking “symphony in one movement.”
