Chicago Symphony Orchestra
Krannert Center for the Performing Arts
500 S. Goodwin Ave.
Urbana, Illinois 61801
Consistently hailed as one of the world’s leading orchestras, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra returns to its “southern home,” Krannert Center’s renowned Foellinger Great Hall. Estonian conductor Paavo Järvi leads a program of passionate and colorful works featuring Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique, a five-movement portrait of romantic obsession, replete with a witches’ sabbath, a guillotine, and opium-induced hallucinations. Chopin’s dazzling First Piano Concerto features Benjamin Grosvenor, hailed by Gramophone magazine as possibly “the most remarkable young pianist of our time.”
