The doctor is in — Doctor Atomic, that is

Conductor David Robertson (husband of pianist Orli Shaham) conducts at Seattle Symphony tonight, and on the bill is John Adams’ “Doctor Atomic Symphony” (the 2007 work Adams concocted from his opera “Doctor Atomic”). “Atomic” and Robertson have a funny entwined history — well, funny in hindsight: it’s the first commmission deadline that Adams ever missed (Robertson was a co-commissioner), and when the CD came out in 2009, its release had to be delayed because Robertson’s name was misspelled on the cover. (Also on tonight’s program: Weber’s Overture to “Der Freischutz”; Stravinsky’s Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra; Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D minor, K. 466)
