It is true that the Dvorak was one of the highlights of the concert. However, everything that Artemis did was exquisite, whether or not you had a favorite piece. It was amazing to see a group that is really in their “sweet spot”. They have played together long enough to truly think with a “group mind”. However, they still have the fire and vigor of a younger group of musicians. Other younger groups have played at Rackham, and they have the abandon that often characterizes such groups, but sometimes it overshadows their musical maturity. Artemis is able to bring everything at once, very special to be able to experience this.
