The program: Prokofiev Symphony No. 1, “Classical,”‘ Mozart Oboe Concerto featuring the ASO’s Elizabeth Koch Tiscione; and Beethoven Symphony No. 2.
The spirit of 18th century composer Franz Joseph Haydn hovers over this concert with Carlo Rizzi conducting the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. 20th century Russian Sergei Prokofiev paid homage to Haydn in his nimble and puckish “Classical” Symphony. 100 years before, Beethoven, a cantankerous student of Haydn, echoed the master in his sunny and explosively exuberant Second Symphony. And the ASO’s own Elizabeth Koch Tiscione dazzles with Mozart’s Oboe Concerto.
