Nearly perfect...

After several days of hard, heavy rain, Thursday’s twilight hosted blue sky just a bit before the opening work on the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra concert.  But little did we know that the performances themselves would bring their own kind of sunshine to Symphony Hall.  For the complete review: https://bachtrack.com/review-villaume-oeyen-atlanta-symphony-orchestra-march-2020

Update! with Julie Coucheron...

A night of firsts...

The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra is in the process of finding a new music director in the wake the previously announced departure of long-time conductor Robert Spano. This means that some guest conductors are likely being auditioned for the part. It is not a leap of logic to conclude that Thomas Søndergård, who appeared once last season and twice this season, is on the “short-list” of possibilities. The Danish-born Søndergård is currently Music Director of the Royal Scottish National Orchestra. Coincidentally, Søndergård’s predecessor at the RSNO was Peter Oundjian, also a frequent and highly regarded guest conductor with the ASO.
