Shakespeare’s works have inspired countless acts of creativity. Few come close to the symphonies inspired by Tchaikovsky’s love of Romeo and Juliet and The Tempest. Conducted by one of the world’s foremost maestros, Riccardo Muti, and performed by the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, this concert features two vividly romantic overtures. Completing the show is Mahler’s Fourth Symphony, one of the composer’s best-loved works.
