Greek violinist Leonidas Kavakos joins the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Symphony Center November 16-19 at Symphony Center. Kavakos brings an “intense, silken, mercurial sound (The Guardian) to his rendition of Szymanowski’s folk-inspired Second Violin Concerto before the CSO presents The Rite of Spring, a panorama of ancient pagan rituals that put Stravinskly’s modernism squarely on the map. The program opens with Mussorgsky’s fiery depiction of a witches’ sabbath.
