Anticipating the announcement of a new music director/conductor in the spring of 1998, the Austin Symphony brings exciting guest artists such as Richard Stoltzman, Alicia de Larrocha, Peter Nero and Nadja Salerno-Sonnenberg to perform with the conductor candidates. In addition to the regular season, a special piano recital by Dmitri Ratser will be available for Austin Symphony season subscribers. This fall the Austin Symphony looks forward to hosting four additional music director/conductor candidates — Jacques Lacombe, Paul Polivnick, William Eddins and Peter Bay.

The season opens on Friday, September 19, 1997, with an appearance by Richard Stoltzman performing with the ASO under the baton of Music Director Candidate Jacques Lacombe.
