DSO’s Ruth Reinhardt conducts smartly in an imaginative all-Italian ReMix concert

The Dallas Symphony Orchestra's ReMix series of shorter and more casual concerts, at Moody Performance Hall, has struggled to find an identity. Maybe that's actually the point, to have maximum flexibility. 
 
But Friday night's concert, with munchies and drinks in the lobby before and afterward, did have a real focus, and an imaginative one. Led by assistant conductor Ruth Reinhardt, it was an all-Italian program, popular Rossini overtures framing two works by the late Luciano Berio.
 
With, essentially, a large chamber-orchestra version of the DSO, both The Barber of Seville and William Tell overtures got vividly characterized performances. Many a conductor could learn from Reinhardt's stick technique. With no wasted motion, she conveys rhythmic precision, expressive shape and a feeling for structure and direction. 
 
That's exactly what she got from the orchestra, plus a sense of the music's wit and charm – and plenty of excitement in the concluding "Lone Ranger" section of the William Tell Overture. Cellist Theodore Harvey's opening solo in the latter was beautifully played, and between the two overtures there were also fine cameos from David Heyde (horn), Gregory Raden (clarinet), Ted Soluri (bassoon), David Buck (flute) and David Matthews (English horn).
