You Choose the Chicago Symphony Conductor
Wednesday, October 03, 2012
The second season of Carnegie Hall Live begins tonight at 7 with a broadcast of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, conducted by music director Riccardo Muti, performing Carl Orff’s Carmina Burana.
For this week’s Showdown we look back to three previous music directors of this powerhouse orchestra: Fritz Reiner (1953-1962), Sir Georg Solti (1969-1991) and Daniel Barenboim (1991-2006). We asked you to tell us which one of the three you wanted to hear with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and we played the winner today at noon.
