For the first full concert of the Florida Tour 2020, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Riccardo Muti headed to Miami for a performance Feb. 11 at the Knight Concert Hall of the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts.
Built in 2006 by acclaimed architect Cesar Pelli, the Arsht Center consists of three main theaters, including the Knight Concert Hall, the Ziff Ballet Opera House and the Carnival Studio Theater. The Knight Concert Hall seats 2,2oo and its acoustic design is by Russell Johnson of Artec Consultants, which also worked on the Meyerson Symphony Center in Dallas.
For its Miami program, the CSO and Muti offered the overture to Wagner’s Flying Dutchman, Hindemith’s Mathis der Maler Symphony and Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9 (From the New World).
Next stop, Sarasota, where the CSO will perform for the first time since 2007 (and also for the first time there under Muti).
