“Although every section of the orchestra performs with trademark precision, one can’t help but continually be awe-stricken by the CSO’s brass section, which is given constant opportunities to shine.” — Mike D. Brownell

A champion of late romantic works, Daniel Barenboim leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in programmatic works by Richard Strauss — Don Quixote and Don Juan. Here, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra musicians take the spotlight, with concertmaster Samuel Magad, principal viola Charles Pikler and principal cello John Sharp performing the solo roles in Quixote.
