One of the busiest conductors alive, Emmanuel Villaume returns to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra for an evening of lavish Romanticism, opening with an uncharacteristically tender piece from the lion of German music Richard Wagner. Siegfried Idyll is a nursery song, written as a Christmas present for the composer's wife, Cosima, and their infant son. The next piece on the program was written by her father, Franz Liszt. A superstar pianist who was famous for sending women into fainting spells, Liszt completed his Piano Concerto No. 1 in 1849. The thundering virtuoso Andrew von Oeyen steps into Liszt’s shoes to perform the Concerto with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra. Also on the program, the ASO plays a perennial favorite: the "Organ" Symphony by Camille Saint-Saëns.
