CL Critic Doug DeLoach Recommends: This program puts Atlanta Symphony Orchestra Principal Oboe Elizabeth Koch Tiscione in the spotlight playing an 18th-century concerto by Alessandro Marcello followed by Brahms' magnificently dramatic Fourth Symphony. The program opens with contemporary composer Elisabetta Brusa’s powerfully brooding Adagio for Strings. — DD
From the venue:ASO: Atlanta audiences have watched principal oboe Elizabeth Koch Tiscione grow and develop over her career with the Orchestra. Here she plays an 18th-century delight by Alessandro Marcello. Then, guest conductor Nicola Luisotti ratchets up the passion in Brahms' Fourth Symphony, a piece which represents the composer's underlying melancholy as he contemplated his own mortality (though he would live another 12 years).
