Peruvian maestro Miguel Harth-Bedoya returns to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for a sensuous and spirited show of Latin music, including a concerto by tango master Astor Piazzolla, and a brand new symphonic suite from Jimmy Lopez's "exquisite" (The Economist) opera Bel Canto, based on the Ann Patchett novel and seen on PBS. The ASO's own Alcides Rodriguez will truly astound you with his virtuosity as he performs the rarely-heard Lorenz "Concerto for Maracas." Ravel's mesmerizing Spanish ballet Bolero ends the evening with a hot-blooded "ole!"
Thursday evening includes a pre-concert chamber music recital at 6:45 p.m. in Atlanta Symphony Hall. Free for all ticket holders for the March 15 and 17, 2018, concerts.
