Riccardo Muti leads a wide-ranging program featuring music from Rossini’s witty comic opera Il viaggio a Reims and Wagner’s Overture to Tannhäuser. Also on the program are two virtuosic concertos—one baroque and one contemporary—featuring CSO Piccolo Jennifer Gunn, and Beethoven’s cheerful Second Symphony.
