ID : 1294   
« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Music Directors of major classical orchestras imprint their personalities as well as their musical skills as conductors on these organizations. The world class Chicago Symphony Orchestra has always been guided by the strong influence of their Music Directors who have brought their unique ideas, styles and personalities to shape the CSO. This study group will trace these men from Theodore Thomas to Richardo Muti with emphasis on the “Solti to Muti” years based on A Portrait in 4 Movements: The Chicago Symphony Under Barenboim, Boulez, Haitink,and Muti, by Andrew Patner (University of Chicago Press, 2019). Individual research will be encouraged. We will also have presentations by special guests. Two field trips to CSO rehearsals with Maestro Muti will be included on April 23 and June 11. No class on 05/25/20.
