A beautifully played concert is not necessarily the same as a musically memorable one as demonstrated by this week’s Atlanta Symphony Orchestra concert. Danish Conductor Thomas Søndergård led a program of French music and was joined in the effort by French pianist Alexandre Tharaud. Berlioz's overture Le Corsaire is a rousing way to begin a concert. The ASO’s swirling strings and punctuating woodwinds began the piece vigorously. The subsequentAdagio was paced somewhat rapidly, and everything hurled toward the finale, with excellent playing by the brass. At the conclusion, Søndergård, with a beaming smile, signaled his approval to the musicians. For the complete review, click here:
