Schubert Unfinished Symphony

Carlos Kalmar, conductor
Michael Thornton, horn

GOULD Spirituals for Orchestra
GLIÈRE Concerto for Horn in B-flat major, Op. 91
SCHUBERT Symphony in B minor, D. 759, "Unfinished"
WAGNER Prelude to Die Meistersinger

In his first Colorado Symphony appearance since 2004, guest conductor Carlos Kalmar leads the orchestra in a performance of varied works. Glière’s sweeping and unprecedentedly demanding Concerto for Horn is performed by Principal Horn Michael Thornton. Contrary to its name, Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony provides a complete, essential symphonic experience despite the mystery surrounding its incomplete status. In a stirring conclusion to the program, Wagner’s bright and virtuosic Prelude to Die Meistersinger introduces the opera’s most important themes in a beautifully self-contained fashion, making it a magnificent concert piece.

SIBELIUS Symphony No. 5 in E-flat major, Op. 82

A true master of our time, violinist Pinchas Zukerman teams with guest conductor Jaime Martín to invigorate Bruch’s renowned concerto. Zukerman lends his virtuosity, prodigious technique, and unwavering artistic standards to a work that teems with lyrical beauty and emotional sincerity. Ravel’s Le tombeau de Couperin pays a light-hearted homage to loved ones lost, while Sibelius’ Symphony No. 5 builds to a majestic and fitting conclusion to an unforgettable performance.

Dvorák Symphony No. 9 Friday, January 18, 2019 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
Dvorák Symphony No. 9

Brett Mitchell, conductor
Damon Gupton, narrator

COPLAND Lincoln Portrait
JOSEPH SCHWANTNER New Morning for the World (Daybreak of Freedom)
DVORÁK Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95, “From the New World”

View the American experiment through the prism of three prominent composers as they reflect their observations of who we were during the Civil War, who we were during the civil rights movement, and who we’ve always strived to be in a trio of thematically tied works. Noted Actor Damon Gupton, known for his roles in Criminal Minds, Deadline, and La La Land, brings the words of Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln Portrait and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in New Morning for the World (Daybreak of Freedom) to life as Copland and Schwantner incorporate narrative passages and a broad lyrical scoring that sounds unmistakably American. In his renowned Symphony No. 9, popularly known as the “New World Symphony,” Dvorák incorporates influences of Native American musical rhythms, African-American spirituals, and the wide-open spaces he encountered on a trip through America’s heartland in the early 1890s in a work of beauty and relevance.

A Classical Romance Thursday, February 14, 2019 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
A Classical Romance

Brett Mitchell, conductor
Kelly O'Connor, mezzo-soprano

HERRMANN "Scène d’Amour" from Vertigo
LIEBERSON Neruda Songs
DIAMOND Music for Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet
BERNSTEIN Symphonic Dances from West Side Story

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, your Colorado Symphony offers a uniquely American look at the themes of love across multiple decades. Herrmann’s “Scene d’amour” from Hitchcock’s Vertigo provides a passionate backing for one of cinema’s most powerful portrayals of romantic longing, while mezzo-soprano Kelly O’Connor lends her exquisite voice to Lieberson’s Neruda Songs, a collection of five sonnets written by Pablo Neruda tracing the arc of love’s evolution. Diamond’s Romeo and Juliet offers a musical interpretation on Shakespeare’s seminal romantic work while Bernstein’s Symphonic Dances from West Side Story provides an updated 20th-century look at the classic Romeo and Juliet story. You won’t want to miss our special Valentine’s Day performance on February 14.

Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6 Friday, March 15, 2019 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 6

Peter Oundjian, conductor
Stephen Hough, piano

JOAN TOWER Made in America
SAINT-SAËNS Piano Concerto No. 5 in F major, Op. 103, “Egyptian”
TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 6 in B minor, Op. 74, “Pathétique”

In the Russian context, Pathétique suggests ‘impassioned suffering’, an eerily suitable description for the psychological drama Tchaikovsky’s final symphony depicts. His death only nine days after the world premiere gives added weight to a defining work of the Romantic period. Returning guest conductor Peter Oundjian joins masterful pianist Stephen Hough, who brings his inspired styling to Saint-Saëns exotic “Egyptian” Piano Concerto No. 5, while the familiar tune to “America the Beautiful” resurfaces throughout Joan Tower’s GRAMMY Award®—Winning Made in America.

Brahms Symphony No. 4

Brett Mitchell, conductor
Peter Cooper, oboe

VAUGHAN WILLIAMS Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis
KEVIN PUTS Oboe Concerto
BRAHMS Symphony No. 4 in E minor, Op. 98

Brett Mitchell’s inaugural Brahms performance with your Colorado Symphony features a musician favorite, Symphony No. 4. With autumnal coloring and heroic character, Brahms’ last symphony is a work erupting with passionate intensity. In contrast, Colorado Symphony Principal Oboist Peter Cooper brings his warm, singing sound to the Colorado premiere of Kevin Puts’ new Oboe Concerto, while Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a Theme by Thomas Tallis, a lush, expansive work for strings, opens this must-see performance.

Berlioz Symphonie fantastique Friday, May 10, 2019 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
Berlioz Symphonie fantastique

Brett Mitchell, conductor
Conrad Tao, piano

MISSY MAZZOLI Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres)
RAVEL Piano Concerto in G major
BERLIOZ Symphonie fantastique, Op. 14

Brett Mitchell conducts your Colorado Symphony in a contrasting program of works both old and new. Berlioz’s bombastic, boisterous Symphonie fantastique is one of the first to tell a complete story through pure orchestral music as he details his own personal pursuit of Harriet Smithson, the Shakespearean actress who later became his wife. Using a recurrent melodic theme to tie the five movements together, Berlioz foreshadows the Wagnerian Leitmotif in a programmatic work that shows the range of human emotions. Featured soloist Conrad Tao performs Ravel’s Piano Concerto, a colorful Gershwin-inspired work with American spirit and jazz flavors while Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres) contains elements of Ravel’s impressionistic nature as it presents music in the shape of a solar system as a collection of rococo loops twist around each other within a larger orbit.
