Utah Symphony / Rachmaninoff Piano Concerto No. 1 and Symphony No. 2 / Abravanel Hall, Salt Lake City
“And to their credit, neither the soloist or Thierry Fischer, the evening’s conductor, allowed the music to wallow in sentiment. Everything was well balanced and articulated.
The same held true for the Second Symphony. Fischer’s interpretation wasn’t overly sentimental – in fact, he underplayed it, much to the music’s benefit.
The orchestra played wonderfully, with clean articulation and well crafted phrases.”
