Austin Symphony Orchestra: Feast of Voices
The ASO and Chorus Austin combined forces for an evening of music that was gorgeous, sensual, and sometimes hall-shaking
Arts Review  October 12, 2017, by Robi Polgar
"...Combination was the theme of an evening of gorgeous, sensual, and sometimes hall-shaking music by the Austin Symphony and Chorus Austin, which offered everything from the barely audible sigh of a yearning lover to the bursting entreaties of the devout...."

Austin Symphony's Fourth of July Concert
No music or fireworks on the water; ASO goes F1 for the 4th
DAILY Arts  July 4, 2014
"...If you're parked on the shores of Lady Bird Lake eagerly anticipating the Austin Symphony's annual serving up of Sousa and the fireworks that ensue, well, citizen, you have a looooong wait – like about a year. Thanks to the current refurbishment of Auditorium Shores, ASO isn't playing at its usual site this year..."

Two new symphonies will premiere in ASO's next season, but how are those costly commissions being paid for?
Arts Story  July 4, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...Since the Fourth of July is a holiday that practically belongs to the Austin Symphony Orchestra, it seems a fitting time to report on ASO's upcoming season – specifically on the two world-premiere works that orchestral fans can look forward to in it. The first, reported in these pages last fall ("Austin Symphony Orchestra: Commission Fever," Oct..."

Austin Symphony: Meeting the orchestra the first time
The Austin Symphony gets in touch with our inner child through a concert featuring some of the classical music that most people first heard when they were young
Arts Story  December 1, 2006, by Barry Pineo
"...This weekend, the Austin Symphony Orchestra will offer Young Person's Guide as the first part of their Concert for the Young at Heart. For most people, says Peter Bay, ASO's conductor, "whether they know anything about classical music or not, the Young Person's Guide and Peter and the Wolf are probably the two pieces [they] will know, either because of records or because they were taken to the symphony somewhere and these pieces were played."..."

Austin Symphony Orchestra With Jennifer Frautschi, Violin
The ASO's latest musical tour of Russia took a literary turn
Arts Review  January 14, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...Music was the medium through which the Austin Symphony Orchestra transported audiences to Russia in its first concert of 2016, and yet the thing that kept providing me with the means to articulate the experience was literature. The event was not unlike an evening spent reading Chekhov and Tolstoy, alternating between short stories by the former and chapters of a novel by the latter: On the one hand, you had these tales of domestic life finely wrought in miniature, and on the other, these sprawling sagas of society spun with an epic sweep...."

Austin Symphony Orchestra
Yolanda Kondonassis joins ASO to show there's much more to harps than angel strumming
Arts Story  March 8, 2013, by Natalie Zeldin

With fireworks banned and cash tight, ASO cancels its holiday concert
Arts Story  July 1, 2011, by Robert Faires
"...Somebody break the news to Tchaikovsky: He won't get his cannonade across Lady Bird Lake this Monday. If you hadn't heard, the Austin Symphony Orchestra has scrubbed not only its traditional blast of Independence Day pyrotechnics – another victim of the extreme drought, as are all public fireworks displays in Austin and Travis County – but also the concert that precedes it..."

Austin Symphony Orchestra
ASO's biggest challenge of 2008? Keeping a straight face with the Flying Karamazovs.
Arts Story  December 26, 2008, by Robert Faires
"...It's been a year of formidable musical challenges for the Austin Symphony Orchestra: Beethoven's Ninth, Brahms' Fourth, Christopher Theofanidis' Field of Infinite Forms, playing with Yo-Yo Ma. But ASO may have saved the biggest for the last two nights of 2008: playing with the Flying Karamazov Brothers..."

Austin Symphony July Fourth Concert & Fireworks
With more than the usual musical suspects, the ASO managed to make its 39th July Fourth concert a rousing success
Arts Review  July 9, 2015, by Robert Faires
"...Peter Bay gets that, which is what makes the Austin Symphony Orchestra's July Fourth concerts more than just another roundup of the usual musical suspects. This year, for instance, the maestro followed "The Star-Spangled Banner" with a tour of the West via a pair of motion picture scores and a prime example of 20th century American regionalism..."

Case in point: the Austin Symphony Orchestra, which is using Kickstarter to raise cash for its first commercial CD..."

Austin Symphony Orchestra With Yefim Bronfman
Yefim Bronfman played his way through the expansive territory of Brahms with masterful command
Arts Review  January 18, 2013, by Robert Faires
"...Bronfman is like the guide who has traveled so extensively through a region that he knows every inch intimately, as he demonstrated to the crowd's delight during his performance of the concerto with the Austin Symphony last week. In every moment of every movement, every shift in the drama – and oh my, is there ever a wealth of drama packed into this piece – Bronfman displayed a masterful command of the material: famously pummeling the keys in the first movement's stormiest flashes, then lightly dancing his way across them in its jubilant runs and crisply executing its exacting trills; sounding out with deep sensitivity and delicacy the reflective Adagio; and bringing a resolute vigor to the ever-more challenging Rondo that seemed to gather more energy and purpose with each new demand from the score..."

The Austin Arts Hall of Fame Class of 2016
These inductees – Ballet Austin's Cookie Ruiz and Stephen Mills, and the Austin Symphony Orchestra's Peter Bay – are cultural heroes who lead by example
Arts Story  May 5, 2016, by Robert Faires
"...A small stick can do just as much, especially when it's being wielded by Peter Bay. The Austin Symphony Orchestra's conductor and music director communicates in a voice as gentle as they come, but put him in front of the ASO – or an orchestra for a performance by Ballet Austin or Austin Opera, an ensemble from the Austin Chamber Music Center or Austin Classical Guitar, the Austin Civic Orchestra, or a high school orchestra, all of which he's conducted for – and the dance of his baton, the motion always fluid and easy yet with gestures purposeful and precise, can tease forth sounds of exceptional feeling and depth..."

I Hear a Symphony
Composer Kent Kennan has been an essential voice in America's musical counterpoint since 1936 when he won the Prix de Rome Composition Prize. Now, at age 90, he'll hear the Austin Symphony play his composition for the very first time.
Arts Story  January 31, 2003, by Jerry Young
