Suite from Lieutenant Kijé - Romance, Prokofiev

Prieto and Yeh

Dec20
8:00 PM
Revueltas, MacMillan, Prokofiev, Lutoslawski
Saturday, December 20, 2014

Carlos Miguel Prieto fittingly opens winter in Chicago with Prokofiev’s Lieutenant Kijé Suite, which tells the musical story of a fictional Russian soldier, complete with romances, a wedding and a festive Troika sleigh ride. Featuring CSO Principal Percussionist Cynthia Yeh as soloist, James MacMillan’s Veni, Veni Emmanuel is a riotous and exuberant showpiece based on the Advent plainchant of the same name. The concert ends with a blazing display of the full orchestra’s virtuosity in Lutoslawski’s bracing and energetic Concerto for Orchestra.
