This evening, we saw the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra (ISO) play Mahler's Songs of a Wayfarer, Faure's Requiem, and Dvorak's 7th Symphony. I had not been to an ISO concert since the orchestra parted company with its last maestro, Mario Venzago. The guest conductor this evening was Pietar Inkinen, currently Music Director of the New Zealand Symphony. The orchestra played beautifully under him, must better than I can remember it playing for Venzago. I hope Inkinen will return to Indianapolis often.
