Coinciding with the 200th anniversary of Giuseppe Verdi’s birthday, CSO Resound releases its second recording with Maestro Riccardo Muti featuring Verdi’s second-to-last opera, Otello. The recording joins remarkable fidelity to the instrumental and choral score with a spellbinding collection of vocal soloists, and will be treasured by opera lovers and anyone who enjoys thrilling music. Recorded live in concert at Symphony Center in 2011, this album will stand for years to come as a unique benchmark in Verdi performance and interpretation by one of today’s finest conductors. Maestro Muti and the CSO’s first recording together was a lauded album of Verdi’s Messa da Requiem, which won two Grammy® Awards.

                  Performance ***       Recording *****

"Verdi’s Otello as conducted by Riccardo Muti benefits from tip-top prescision from the Chicago Symphony Orchestra players. They reach a level of pristine excellence that any opera house - no matter how eminent - would struggle to equal..."
