Ohlsson Rules.....

One sign that the long hot Atlanta summer may soon be over is the beginning of the new season of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra (ASO), about which recent news has been positive: it is operating in the black and musicians are reporting a new, positive attitude in the organization.  Decreased temperatures, more money, and improved attitudes should make conditions right for a memorable concert season, and at the least the season opener was a good omen.    After the Damrosch-arranged national anthem, Music Director Spano led a John Adams-penned fanfare, which is one of a three-part series of John Adams’ work that will be featured this season in honor of the composer’s 70th birthday.   The “Distant Trumpet” fanfare is a small 4-minute work that which sounded typically Adams, with brightly-colored orchestration and just a touch of foreboding in the low brass.  For the complete review, click here:
