The Chicago Symphony Orchestra, which has long held a secure spot in the top tier of the world’s orchestras, will come to South Florida this week for two concerts of 19th-century classics.

There is nothing adventurous or out of the ordinary on the programs in West Palm Beach and Miami. But the concerts will offer the chance to hear an incomparable ensemble perform some of the greatest pieces of Beethoven, Tchaikovsky and Rimsky-Korsakov.

Led by music director Riccardo Muti, the orchestra will play an all-Beethoven concert Tuesday at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach. The program includes the Leonore Overture No. 3, Symphony No. 5 and Symphony No. 7.

On Wednesday the orchestra will perform at Miami’s Arsht Center. The program includes Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 and Rimsky-Korsakov’s Sheherazade.

Performances are 8 p.m. Tuesday at the Kravis Center in West Palm Beach and 8 p.m. Wednesday at the Arsht Center in Miami.
