Pierre Boulez & the Chicago Symphony Orchestra
With Boulez, 84, threatening to cut back on guest-conducting assignments, now more than ever is the time to catch classical music's cool modernist ruler conducting three of his most exciting signature works: Stravinsky's complete Firebird, Bartok's "Concerto for Two Pianos, Percussion, and Orchestra," and his own Livre pour cordes. The program also features two fine pianists, Pierre-Laurent Aimard and Tamara Stefanovich.
