Concert review: Talent on display, choice for symphony director tougher than ever

There may have been some in the audience of this weekend’s concerts by the Spokane Symphony who harbored a secret wish that the concerts had not gone so well as they did. This perverse wish arose from the fact that the orchestra was auditioning five candidates for the position of music director, and the three previous candidates we had a chance to hear had all performed brilliantly. It would have made things much easier if Arthur Arnold, the fourth finalist and conductor of these concerts, had proved to be at least a little less outstanding, just slightly less worthy of consideration. If anyone did harbor such hopes, they were dashed.
