Review: Orchestra reaches for the exceptional with guest conductor Kazushi Ono
25 Jan. 2013
A review is online by ArtsATL for the concert with the violin soloist Vadim Gluzman on 24 January 2013 in Atlanta USA.
- The concert opened with the Overture to Carl Maria von Weber’s opera “Euryanthe,” which the orchestra had not played for 30 years — since 1983. It was a brilliant curtain-raiser. The players offered up a bright, tight sense of ensemble under Ono’s baton, giving a crisp punch to music that could easily have been played like a barn-burner. Instead, it sounded fresh in ways that made the ears sit up and take notice.
