Emotions run high in this season’s opener, as Andrew Litton leads the Colorado Symphony in a tribute to three great Russian composers, featuring very special guest Branford Marsalis. Best known as a master of jazz, Marsalis will electrify Boettcher Concert Hall with an expressive interpretation of Glazunov’s “Concerto for Alto Saxophone.” Shostakovich’s sweeping Symphony No. 10 closes the program in grand fashion.
