Riccardo Muti Cancels CSO Concerts Following Mishap >>

74-year-old Chicago Symphony Orchestra music director, Riccardo Muti, could not have been more confident going into last week's concerts in South Korea -- predicting that the attendees at the Seoul Arts Center would not soon forget the CSO's performance there. It seems that that hubris might have led to his having to cancel his upcoming February residency back in the Windy City. While the shows went off without a hitch, a minor accident between the final January 29 concert and Muti's return home led to his needing an emergency hip operation and some time off.
