Editors’ Notes Not particularly known for his Bruckner, Riccardo Muti stamps his mark on the composer’s unfinished Ninth in the company of his Chicago Symphony Orchestra, an ensemble with a long and distinguished Bruckner pedigree. Less incandescent than some, leaner than others, Muti’s lyrical interpretation emphasises long, singing lines—not surprising for one of the world’s great opera conductors—and draws some magnificent playing from this great orchestra. This live performance closed the CSO’s 2016 season with every player giving his or her all.
