Bare handed and aerobic, Bairos and the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra displayed a reassuring precision. It is good to hear them back in top form.
Bairos worked to distinguish each one [Brahms, Haydn Variations] emphasizing Brahms' syncopations, juxtaposed meters and lush harmonies. He elicited terrific dynamic contrasts from the players that heightened the effect.
Under Bairos, the orchestra played a series of rhythmically tricky works with precision and clarity.
Bairos conducts with every fiber of his being, his delight on the podium is palpable.
