2011 Grammy Winner - Best Classical Album
2011 Grammy Winner - Best Choral Album
Chicago inaugurates Riccardo Muti’s tenure as music director with their most anticipated release of the year. Recorded live in January 2009, from sold-out, electrifying concerts, this stunning performance brilliantly captures both the pathos and passion of Verdi’s masterpiece. Something of a marker in Muti’s career, who can forget his groundbreaking account for EMI? 'Chicago's new boss' features on the cover of September BBC Music Magazine and in a six-page feature/interview inside the magazine. “I’m sure many in the packed hall will long remember it as a life-changing experience... The thwacks of the bass drum ricocheted mightily... with the fiery blasts of the brass from the balcony really sounding as if Heaven were beckoning.” Chicago Tribune
