To wrap up their four-concert residency at Tokyo’s Bunka Kaikan, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Music Director Riccardo Muti performed two more signature works, Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sheherazade.
Before the concert, a self-described CSO super-fan paid tribute to her favorite orchestra: Madoka Kikuchi traveled from Sapporo, 831 kilometers (516 miles) to the north, to hear the CSO in person in Tokyo. After the performance, CSO musicians and patrons headed to the Mori Art Museum to enjoy a post-concert dinner at the Moon Restaurant, 250 meters above ground level.
