This week with the Chicago Symphony, Edo de Waart conducts Beethoven’s Second Symphony. It was mostly written while the composer was taking a break from the stress of Vienna and living in the pastoral town of Heiligenstadt. We’ll also hear Mozart’s Symphony Number 38, a piece composed for the Bohemian capital of Prague. Plus, Mozart’s Horn Concerto Number 3, featuring the CSO’s Acting Principal Horn, Daniel Gingrich, as soloist. As a bonus, the program concludes with a performance of Strauss’ Metamorphosen from May 2014.
