Music Director Riccardo Muti opens the 2011-2012 season with music by celebrated Italian film composer Nino Rota, best known for his Oscar®-winning score to The Godfather. The Chicago Tribune wrote of CSO Principal Flute Mathieu Dufour, who performs Ibert’s spirited concerto, “…he confirmed his uncanny mastery of color and dynamics, filling the hall with a vibrant, crystalline sound.” Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony is sure to mesmerize from its funereal beginning to triumphant conclusion.

Rota Music from Il Gattopardo (The Leopard)
Ibert Flute Concerto, Op. 37
Mathieu Dufour, flute
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 5 in E Minor, Op. 64
Mozart Symphony No. 34 in C Major, K. 338
