Riccardo Muti & Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Friends of the Festival Hall concert

  • Wed25January19:00 H

When the queen reviews the troops, she does so to Edward Elgar’s music, whose marches wonderfully reflect the pride and greatness of England. Elgar’s In the South Overture also radiates strength and nobility; while in Italy, the composer was inspired by a vision of the armies of antiquity, which he immediately transformed into music. Even if such emotionalism was long out of fashion, Elgar’s music is now being performed more and more often – and fittingly, our concert will be led by one of the greatest Italian conductors of our time, Riccardo Muti.


Sponsors: Richard and Bettina Kriegbaum
