Guitarist Miloš Karadaglić Returns

Gemma New, winner of the 2021 Solti Conducting Prize, returns to the podium in Symphony Hall. New first dazzled our audiences in Piedmont Park, filling in at the last minute for an ailing colleague. This weekend, she's joined by classical guitar superstar Miloš Karadaglić, who returns to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra to perform Joby Talbot’s concerto Ink Dark Moon, a piece that pays homage to his Balkan heritage.
Also on the program, Rachmaninov's Vocalise, written at his beloved country estate Ivanovka, and Sibelius' Symphony No. 5, a masterwork born out of World War I, ill health and three hefty revisions. "These symphonies of mine are more confessions of faith than are my other works," Sibelius said of his later symphonies, including his Fifth.
The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra will be implementing a mandatory vaccine policy for audiences. Beginning September 1, 2021, proof of vaccination or a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours prior to performance, as well as matching photo ID, will be required upon arrival at Atlanta Symphony Hall.
