“The music is ravishingly beautiful, perfectly constructed; it says what it has to say with the utmost delicacy of feeling. Everything is understated, but no less vivid for that.” — Chicago Tribune (on Riccardo Muti leading the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in Catalani’s Contemplazione, September 2016)
