There are plenty of choices this weekend for all musical tastes. Nicholas Kraemer leads the Chicago Symphony Orchestra in a program of Mozart, Haydn, Telemann and Richard Strauss beginning Thursday night at Symphony Center. And pianist Stewart Goodyear will serve up a challenging program on the same stage Sunday afternoon including sonatas by Barber, Scriabin and Beethoven (the epic Hammerklavier).

The weekend’s most venturesome program takes place Friday night at the Museum of Contemporary Photography, 600 S. Michigan Ave. ICE (International Contemporary Ensemble) will present an evening of music for flutes and bass clarinets in various combinations including works of John Zorn, Felipe Lara, and three world premieres by Pablo Chin, Marcos Balter and Ryan Ingebritsen. Concert time is 7:30 p.m.; 312-494-2655
