1 CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA ASSOCIATION ANNOUNCES PROGRAMMING FOR 2014/15 SEASON CHICAGO (February 3, 2014) Chicago Symphony Orchestra (CSO) Music Director Riccardo Muti and Deborah F. Rutter, president of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association (CSOA), announce the programming for the CSO and Symphony Center Presents (SCP) 2014/15 season the Orchestra s 124th season and Maestro Muti s fifth season as music director. Next season, Maestro Muti leads ten weeks of subscription concerts in four residencies with the Orchestra in Chicago, with appearances in September/October, January, February/March and June. In addition, he leads the Orchestra on a threeweek tour of Europe in October and November, and in three performances at Carnegie Hall in January. The wide range of programs conceived by Maestro Muti for the upcoming season highlights his rewarding relationship with the musicians of the CSO, at the same time supporting his commitment to bringing live music to the broadest possible audience as part of the CSO s Citizen Musician Initiative. He and the Orchestra continue to collaborate with some of today s most visionary artists to present dynamic programming that balances both well-known and less familiar repertoire. Among Maestro Muti s programming for the 2014/15 season is a spotlight on two venerable Russian composers. By juxtaposing the symphonic works of Tchaikovsky and Scriabin, Maestro Muti explores the contrasts between these two composers who share a common heritage while owning distinctive styles. Maestro Muti has long been a passionate champion of Scriabin s music and is dedicated to performing not only his most famous works, but also scores that may be less recognizable to audiences. A season-long focus on French composers traverses two centuries of Gallic culture from Berlioz to Boulez, whose 90th birthday is celebrated during this season. A three-week festival in May, entitled Reveries and Passions and led by Esa-Pekka Salonen, serves as a highlight, with a specific emphasis on 20 th century French dramatic and operatic works. The Austro-Germanic tradition, which lies at the heart of Western classical music, is represented throughout the 2014/15 season by masterworks of the core orchestral repertoire, including works by Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms, Bruckner and Mahler. The season also features the world premieres of commissioned works by Mason Bates and Anna Clyne in the culmination of their five years as Mead Composers-in-Residence.

2 Other highlights of the Orchestra s 2014/15 season include: A season-opening performance of Beethoven s Symphony No. 9, with soprano Camilla Nylund, mezzo-soprano Ekaterina Gubanova, tenor Christopher Ventris and bass-baritone Eric Owens, conducted by Maestro Muti A European tour in October and November that finds the CSO making its debut in Warsaw, Poland, along with a return visit to Paris, an unprecedented weeklong residency in Vienna and performances in additional cities to be announced at a later date Maestro Muti and the Orchestra and Chorus return to New York s Carnegie Hall, for three programs on January 30, 31 and February 1, featuring guest pianist Yefim Bronfman performing Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2, and Prokofiev s Alexander Nevsky, with the Chicago Symphony Chorus and mezzo-soprano Alisa Kolosova. Kolosova and the CSO are joined by tenor Sergey Skorokhodov for Scriabin s Symphony No. 1. Explorations of the works of Boulez, Brahms and Ravel in the CSO s innovative, multimedia Beyond the Score series The programs of Symphony Center Presents and the Institute for Learning, Access and Training complement the CSO s subscription programs and demonstrate Maestro Muti s and the CSOA s commitment to supporting young musicians and to serving the greater Chicago community through music. The diverse initiatives of the Institute all contribute to these efforts, while the numerous SCP series bring a wide range of today s leading artists and ensembles from all genres of music to Chicago. Highlights this season include CSO Judson and Joyce Green Creative Consultant Yo-Yo Ma collaborating with musicians of the CSO, as well as bringing his international consortium of musicians, the Silk Road Ensemble, in its 15th anniversary, to the Symphony Center stage. The SCP Chamber Music, Orchestra and Piano series further expand the broad spectrum of talent from around the world that comes to Chicago to perform in Orchestra Hall at Symphony Center. The SCP Jazz series enters its third decade in 2014/15; programming details will be announced in April. 2

4 CHICAGO SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA PROGRAMS THE COMPLETE SYMPHONIES OF TCHAIKOVSKY AND A CELEBRATION OF SCRIABIN Piotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky ( ) composed some of the most enduring orchestral and theatrical scores of the 19th century. He broke free from the predominant Russian nationalist movement and forged a musical style that merged native elements with Western compositional techniques a style that resulted in great success both at home, as well as abroad. He was arguably the first Russian composer to achieve such international success, but his popularity was tinged by personal crises and chronic depression. Throughout his music one hears the sense of tragedy, loss and regret. Tchaikovsky s younger compatriot, Alexander Scriabin ( ) was an inventive figure in the music world, whose idiosyncratic musical language evolved over time into his own system of chromaticism. Riccardo Muti has been a leading interpreter of the works of Scriabin, and in this year, observing the 100th anniversary of Scriabin's death, he is dedicated to showcasing four symphonic masterworks by this often overlooked composer. Throughout the 2014/15 season, Maestro Muti and the CSO perform the complete symphonies of Tchaikovsky alongside a survey of other works by Scriabin and Tchaikovsky, revealing the similarities between these two Russian compositional giants, as well as exploring their contrasting viewpoints. The CSO s overview of Tchaikovsky and Scriabin includes ten programs led by Maestro Muti that feature music by these great Russian composers. Maestro Muti begins the CSO s survey of Tchaikovsky with another free Concert for Chicago in the Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park. This program includes the composer s The Tempest, the Suite from The Sleeping Beauty, and the popular Symphony No. 4. The free performance is part of Maestro Muti s and the CSO s longstanding commitment to Citizen Musicianship, using the power of music to contribute to our culture and our communities. (September 19) Maestro Muti conducts the season s first CSO subscription program, with a program featuring Debussy's La mer and Tchaikovsky's Fourth Symphony. The program s opening work alternates, with Berlioz s Waverley Overture, Mendelssohn s Calm Sea and Prosperous Voyage and Tchaikovsky s The Tempest each being performed. (September 25, 26, 27, 30) The CSO celebrates the 100th anniversary of Andrzej Panufnik's birth with performances of Panufnik's Concerto in modo antico led by Maestro Muti, with CSO Principal Trumpet Christopher Martin as soloist. The entire program combines Polish and Russian themes, including Stravinsky s Suite from The Firebird and Tchaikovsky s Symphony No. 3 (Polish). (October 2, 3, 4) Maestro Muti conducts Tchaikovsky s Symphony No. 1 (Winter Daydreams) and welcomes pianist Yefim Bronfman for Brahms Piano Concerto No. 2. (January 15, 16, 17, 2015) 4

(February 22, 2015) FROM BERLIOZ TO BOULEZ: COLOR AND SENSUALITY REVERIES AND PASSIONS French composers through the ages have been inspired by their country s unparalleled landscape, vistas, skylines and inimitable culture, whether working with the clarity and precision of the Renaissance and Baroque, the programmatic styles of the 19 th century, the sensuousness and emotion of Impressionism or the trailblazing modernism of the 20 th and 21 st centuries. The works that are linked by their French lineage on the CSO s 2014/15 season form the foundation of From Berlioz to Boulez: Color and Sensuality, which traces a nation s search for a musical identity. 5
