The Italian maestro Riccardo Muti set foot in Chicago with the first CSO season in 2010. 2012 will see him touring with this big United States orchestra for the first time. The announced programme includes an evening with Busoni’s Turandot Suite and Brahms’ fourth, and the other Mendelssohn’s Italian Symphony and Beethoven’s Eroica. The same programme will run in Taipei, Shanghai, Beijing and Seoul. More information may be found here.
The CSO came in 2009 with Bernard Haitink, also during the Hong Kong Arts Festival.
