THE BEST OF 2014: Classical music and opera 

By Andrew Patner 

2014 was a year of much news in the local classical and opera worlds — the naming of a new president of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra Association, the announced departures of three of the CSO’s principal wind players and the return of the fourth, a new young program director at classical mainstay WFMT-FM (98.7), the collapse of the International Beethoven Festival after younger musicians revealed that they had not been paid, and the high level of music-making by names great and less known. Here are but 10 of the many events that stood out this year.

Inside and out with Grant Park
The Grant Park Music Festival had at least two historic evenings in an early week of its 80th season: the Blues Festival driving a mammoth “Romeo and Juliet” by Berlioz — orchestra, chorus, and soloists — inside and into the wholly appropriate Auditorium Theatre (in its own 125th year) and on-again off-again storms sending audiences under and out of cover as an outdoor program a few nights later started and stopped and started and stopped again. Young violinist Stefan Jackiw, whose opening-night concert last season was canceled altogether by the mayor due to a storm threat that never brought a storm, was able to squeeze in a spirited performance of Mozart’s “Turkish” Concerto before the last lightning bolts, but that was about it.
