Riccardo Muti conducts a rousing start to the 2022/23 Season. After opening with Samuel Coleridge-Taylor’s lush Solemn Prelude, the CSO is joined by the formidable Yefim Bronfman in Mozart’s joyous and richly scored Piano Concerto No. 22. The evening ends with a knockout finale: Tchaikovsky’s brilliant Francesca da Rimini.
