Atlanta Symphony Orchestra
Robert Spano, conductor
Emanuel Ax, piano
Experience “one of the great classical artists of his generation at the peak of his ability” (broadstreetreview.com) when Emanuel Ax tackles the broad vistas of Brahms’s Piano Concerto No. 1. A piece that combines pianistic élan with the meatiness of a symphony, the “Brahms First” remains one of the most gratifying and most popular Romantic concertos. Robert Spano presents the Brahms alongside the world premiere of a new symphony by Atlanta-based Emory University composer and professor, Richard Prior.
Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 6:45 pm (free admission).
