My (radio) guest tonight: Riccardo Muti, music director of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (above), in the first of two parts of a new conversation (recorded last week) reflecting on his recent activities, and on Schubert's orchestral work -- the subject of his focus in Chicago from now through June.
Riccardo Muti announced today that he has renewed his CSO contract through 2019-2020. You can read my Chicago Sun-Times report here.
See you on the radio!
