"No conductor is quite so persuasive an interpreter of Cherubini as Riccardo Muti," in the words of Grammophon magazine. Cherubini - revered by Beethoven, Schumann, and Brahms - was born in Florence, but moved to Paris before the French Revolution. In these often monumental works, Muti sees "an extremely cultivated, neo-Classical composer - an architect of composition ... At first his music's beauty can seem cold, but there is an internal fire that is kept under control."
