Home from Chicago. Had a great time visiting DePaul in "the Windy City" (which was not very windy but cold and snowy) and seeing the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (featuring Yo-Yo Ma and Giovanni Sollima) conducted by Riccardo Muti. If you told me 17 years ago that my baby girl (the offspring of two adrenaline junkies) would grow up to study classical music I would have laughed. Thank you Caitlin for the journey you have taken us on. I am so excited to see where you take us next.

"I am deeply saddened by the loss of a great musician, a man who for many decades has marked history in the world of conducting and musical interpretation for international institutions. His work is an immense testimony to the importance of European and Italian culture around the world.

New post: "Riccardo Muti and Chicago Symphony at Carnegie Hall - New York Times"
I thoroughly enjoyed the Chicago Symphony Orchestra concert at Carnegie Hall last Friday. Riccardo Muti, the CSO conductor, has observed that touring exposes the weaknesses of a mediocre orchestra while bringing out what makes a superior orchestra sound superior. The maestro’s axiom certainly has proven true in the case of his Chicago Symphony Orchestra as it approaches the end of its three-concert residency at Carnegie Hall here this week. The combination of elegance and brilliance Muti inspires in these 100-odd musicians is something to behold wherever the CSO performs. But at Carnegie, with its fabled acoustics that give back everything orchestras put in, these qualities are enhanced, extended, ennobled. The music-making takes on refinements of sound and style and color not readily available to the Chicago musicians back home. That’s what a great concert hall and a great orchestra under a great conductor can produce together.

I had to miss Saturday night’s Symphony Ball -- a first in decades of covering them -- but Chicago Symphony Orchestra Music Director Riccardo Muti himself exonerated me, wishing my aunt a Happy Birthday and noting that there would be other Symphony Balls.
