Music Director Robert Spano, currently in his 11th season as music director of the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, is recognized internationally as one of the most imaginative conductors today. Since 2001, he has invigorated and expanded the Orchestras repertoire while elevating the ensemble to new levels of international prominence and acclaim.
Under Mr. Spanos artistic leadership, the Orchestra and its audiences have together explored a creative mix of programming, including Theater of a Concert performances, which explore different formats, settings, and enhancements for the musical performance experience, such as the first concert-staged performances of John Adamss Doctor Atomic in November 2008 and the production of Puccinis Madama Butterfly in June 2011. The Atlanta School of Composers reflects Mr. Spanos commitment to nurturing and championing music
through multi-year partnerships defining a new generation of American composers, including Osvaldo Golijov, Jennifer Higdon, Christopher Theofanidis, Michael Gandolfi, and Adam Schoenberg. Since the beginning of his tenure (to date), Mr. Spano and the Orchestra have performed more than 100 concerts containing contemporary works (composed since 1950).
Mr. Spano has a discography with the Atlanta Symphony Orchestraof 19 recordings, six of which have been honored withGrammy awards. He has
led the Orchestras performances at Carnegie Hall, Lincoln Center, as well asthe Ravinia,Ojai, and Savannah MusicFestivals.Mr. Spano has led the New York and Los Angeles Philharmonics, San Francisco, Boston, Cleveland, Chicago and Philadelphia Symphony Orchestras, as well as Orchestra Filarmonica della Scala, BBC Symphony and Amsterdams Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra.
