But James Aros Jr. Language like this suggests Stutzmann has a role with the orchestra beyond isolated concert dates, and that’s a good thing .
The French conductor and contralto views orchestral sound and phrasing through an operatic lens, which, in her concerts here so far, is a sensibility that has melded nicely with the personality of this orchestra. Here’s what we know so far: How does the city determine property values? There are several industry-accepted appraisal methods, and for single-family and small multi-unit properties the OPA used the sales comparison approach, in which recent nearby property sales are the primary factor in determining assessed values, Aros said. We think this paint color suits the futuristic, spaceship-like design of the hyper-GT to a tee and is beautifully complemented with Gloss Silver wheels wrapped in Pirelli P-Zero tires. It’s possible, though, to be bullish on Stutzmann while still recognizing that Thursday night’s concert wasn’t quite what it should have been (or might be by the time this weekend’s repeats roll around). There were moments of greatness in the Tchaikovsky Symphony No.) » READ MORE: What you need to know about Philly’s 31% property assessment spike The city takes sales data on similar structures in OPA-determined geographic zones to reach estimated values for the area, and then augments the values for individual properties based on what the city knows about them from inspections, records, and permits, Aros said. 6 she led. Powering the McLaren Speedtail is a 4. But here and there, her imprint on the piece created the feeling of an artist standing before a slightly unfinished canvas. The city does not visually inspect every property for every reassessment.
I wondered, too, about the guest soloist she brought in. In with the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra last week, Stutzmann led the Brahms Violin Concerto with violinist Daniel Lozakovich, and here the pair took on the Prokofiev Violin Concerto No. He declined to say how much of the city was inspected as OPA calculated the new assessments. PHOTO GALLERY. 2 . The young violinist (he’s 21 and looks younger) has benefited from a close relationship with another conductor, Valery Gergiev, now most widely noted for his role as an acolyte of Vladimir Putin. “I don’t have a percentage of properties that were looked at as part of this reassessment directly but there’s still some level of that that goes on every year. Lozakovich’s biography on his website says he “maintains a strong artistic partnership” with Gergiev, although perhaps that biography is old.
The artist’s bio in the orchestra’s program booklet doesn’t mention Gergiev among the dozen-plus conductors with whom the violinist has performed. The first thing to understand about the reassessment is that the city started from scratch instead of updating its old valuations. Will he perform again with Gergiev? Messages to his London-based management were not answered. It’s easy to hear why Lozakovich has so quickly risen to the elite realm of top orchestras here and in Europe. That means that the OPA first determined a property’s overall market value, and then applied 20% of it to the land and 80% to the building, or the “improvement,” in appraisal parlance. He has chops, and his sound has a clarion presence. What I didn’t hear was a strong point of view, some aspect of individuality that reveal who he is and what he thinks of this piece. Aros said that the reason for the change to an across-the-board 80/20 split was that the city’s previous approach — a sliding scale based on the building conditions — was confusing for many homeowners.
He reached a certain level of sweetness when, in the first movement, the violinist introduces a Romeo and Juliet -esque theme, and in the second movement Lozakovich walked an impressive tightrope of high notes. But mostly on this night he was a promise unfulfilled. “It’s a much more uniform allocation throughout the residential portfolio. The orchestra was dotted with substitute players and a few changes in the usual seating. Bassoonists Mark Gigliotti and Holly Blake were standouts among the woodwinds in the Prokofiev; it’s not uncommon for non-principal players to take principal spots in concertos. Aros said those deviations often have to do with factors that can’t be seen from the outside, such as the internal conditions of a property or permits obtained by its owner. But the switch-up continued in the Tchaikovsky Sixth .
Associate principal clarinetist Samuel Caviezel’s usual quiet presence was the perfect fit for the sweet, extremely soft solo a few minutes into the first movement. But Aros said that if owners are confident their valuations are too high compared to their neighbors’, they should appeal their assessments with the Board of Revision of Taxes. And it was here the performance clicked. The orchestra’s brass were exceptionally fine — razor sharp and penetrating. 3. Stutzmann tried to hold onto silence in the hall in the moment at the end of the triumphant third movement, but it didn’t work; the audience applauded and the lamenting fourth movement had to wait. Some conductors slow the finale, suggesting a portrait of death. “With this reassessment, we’ve analyzed several new years worth of sales from the last reassessment, and we would expect that these reassessments better reflect current market conditions,” he said.
If Stutzmann subscribes to the view, she believes in a death of some momentum, a pulsing struggle whose conclusion, though inevitable, still comes as a gasping surprise. Additional performance: Saturday at 8 p.” What is the CAMA system? OPA this year implemented for the first time a Computer-Assisted Mass Appraisal, or CAMA, system.m. in Verizon Hall, Broad and Spruce Streets. But implementing the new system has been rocky, and Aros said there still may be problems that need to be worked out. Tickets are $10-$165.
. “It does take a little bit of time for everybody to get familiar and understand how [the software] works,” Aros said.
