This week with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Music Director Riccardo Muti invites you to surrender to Bruckner’s Ninth Symphony, a valedictory work that thrills with its grand sonorities, broad melodies, and profound silences.We’ll also hear Bruckner’s Te Deum. An earlier piece for orchestra, chorus and soloists, it’s steeped in the composer’s deep religious faith. As a bonus, Spanish-flavored music by Ravel, Rapsodie espagnol.
