In Wednesday’s (3/13) Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Jon Ross writes, “For its 80th season, the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and music director Nathalie Stuzmann have programmed a range of orchestral standbys, highlighted by eight Beethoven symphonies, Mozart’s Mass in C Minor featuring the ASO Chorus and Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4. Among the guest soloists are internationally known superstars including Yo-Yo Ma and the pianists Marc-Andre Hamelin, Inon Barnatan and Kirill Gerstein. Stutzmann opens her third season as music director on Sept. 9 and 11 with Mahler’s first symphony, conducting 10 additional concert series throughout the season. Former music director Robert Spano will return for two weeks of concerts, and concertmaster David Coucheron will lead a concert built around Vivaldi’s ‘The Four Seasons,’ which he did to great success earlier this season. Twelve guest conductors will lead the orchestra, with conductor Peter Oundjian closing the season June 5 and 7, 2025, with Mahler’s Symphony No. 7. Robert Spano, who led the ASO for more than two decades, returns to conduct programs on March 20 and 22 and March 27 and 29, 2025.”
