PierreBoulezThere has been a conductor change for tonight's GREAT PERFORMANCES featuring the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

Conductor Emeritus Pierre Boulez (right) replaces Music Director Riccardo Muti. The Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association announced that Muti has been forced to withdraw from all of his October performances due to illness. 

The change in conductor also necessitates a change in the musical program, now “Chicago Symphony Orchestra: Pierre Boulez Conducts Mahler’s 7th.”
