When Riccardo Muti and Yo-Yo Ma join forces, it is “music-making at the highest level” (Chicago Tribune). The incomparable cellist collaborates with Muti and the CSO in Shostakovich’s introspective and dark-hued Second Cello Concerto. This program of works by 20th-century Russian masters also features Shostakovich’s buoyant Festive Overture and Prokofiev’s thrilling Third Symphony, a work of dramatic climaxes, rich melodies, and vivid orchestral color.
