The summer’s extreme heat and lack of rain have created drought conditions in Atlanta. As fate would have it, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra this week programmed two works drenched with water, albeit of the salty variety. Elgar’s Sea Pictures captures the essence of the sea by joining orchestral music and the sung verses of various poets, who describe their thoughts and feelings about the vastness and mysteries of the deep. Elgar even included a poem authored by his wife, Caroline Alice Roberts, entitled “In Heaven (Capri)”. For this performance, Robert Spano and the ASO were joined by mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton.  For the complete review, click here:
