Krannert Center Events: March 2022: Chicago Symphony Orchestra

Event Details

Riccardo Muti, Zell Music Director
Paavo Järvi, conductor

Benjamin Grosvenor, piano

Consistently hailed as one of the world’s leading orchestras, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra returns to its “southern home,” Krannert Center’s renowned Foellinger Great Hall. Estonian conductor Paavo Järvi leads a program of passionate and colorful works featuring Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, a five-movement portrait of romantic obsession, replete with a witches’ sabbath, a guillotine, and opium-induced hallucinations. Chopin’s dazzling First Piano Concerto features Benjamin Grosvenor, hailed by Gramophone magazine as possibly “the most remarkable young pianist of our time.”

Berlioz: Roman Carnival Overture, Op. 9
Chopin: Piano Concerto No. 2 in F Minor, Op. 21
Berlioz: Symphonie fantastique, Op. 14
