Piano soloist Andrew von Oeyen joined [the Atlanta Symphony] to perform Liszt’s Piano Concerto no. 1 in E flat was incredible! [Von Oeyen's] power and musicality are undeniable. He and the conductor were fully together in their conception of this music and they made frequent eye-contact throughout the performance as if to ensure a shared vision. The musicians seemed maximally inspired in their playing...In response to numerous curtain calls, von Oeyen treated the audience to a sublime performance of Liszt’s Liebestraum, nuanced with some well-placed rubatos...Overall, this was a very fine concert...That, in addition to a powerful piano soloist who impressed with his musicianship, made this a stand-out performance."
