Coming off stints leading the St. Louis Symphony and the National Symphony Orchestra, guest conductor Michael Christie takes the podium to guide the award-winning Atlanta Symphony Orchestra through an eclectic program of 18th and 20th century pieces from Mendelssohn and Schubert. Franz Schubert’s Symphony no. 8 was left incomplete at his death, along with a list of his favorite types of pie. The symphony’s famous, meandering theme begins in the cello section, floating to the violins and violas before three thunderous, full-orchestra blasts shatter the calm, sending the first movement on its way. Austrian composer Marcel Tyberg’s reconstructed third and fourth movements—based on notes left by Schubert—fill out the work. Youthful pianist Behzod Abduraimov takes the lead for Felix Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto no. 1, showing off his chops with the piece’s stormy virtuosity. Finally, Mieczyslaw Weinberg’s Rhapsody on Moldavian Themes blows up traditional Jewish folk music to bombastic orchestral size.

Now in his 11th season as the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra’s music director, Robert Spano takes the baton in a program that kicks off with a world premiere of Alvin Singleton’s Different River. Globetrotting ivory tickler Leon Bates stars in George Gershwin’s famous Rhapsody in Blue, taking over with the piano after the sultry clarinet solo that kicks off the piece. Aaron Copland’s Symphony no. 3 finishes off the program, with a fourth movement that features his Fanfare for the Common Man.

Noted by the New York Times for his “stellar reputation as a Handel specialist,” Nicholas McGegan brings his skills to a program of 18th and 19th century treasures in “Go For Baroque.” By turns stately and mischievous, Handel’s Concerto Grosso lets the string section delight in intricate interplay, with airy solos and fugues that carefully circle back on themselves like private-eye dogs shadowing their own tails. Violinist Stefan Jackiw—praised by the Washington Post as possessing a “talent that’s off the scale”—picks up his fiddle for Max Bruch’s Scottish Fantasy, written by the folk-music-loving conductor to commemorate traditional Caledonian tunes. Finally, Felix Mendelssohn’s Symphony no. 4 earns its nickname, Italian, with rollicking staccato strings and bright brass peals that recall the clear skies and festive atmosphere of his vacation to Florence and Rome.

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra

Throughout nearly seven decades, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has bridged musical gaps with an extensive catalog of Grammy-winning recordings that include symphonies, operas, and both gospel and classical choral works. Once helmed by the chorale superstar Robert Shaw, the orchestra has produced six Grammy-winning releases in its 12 years under current director Robert Spano. Its allied institution, the Atlanta School of Composers, provides training, support, and ear massages for hardworking contemporary artists.
