Gershwin Concerto in F Conducted by Brett Mitchell Saturday, September 29, 2018 7:30PM   ·   More Info »
Gershwin Concerto in F Conducted by Brett Mitchell

Brett Mitchell, conductor
Joyce Yang, piano
Timothy McAllister, saxophone

ELLINGTON Three Black Kings
GERSHWIN Concerto in F
JOHN ADAMS City Noir

Your Colorado Symphony celebrates three titans of American music with an evening of urban symphonic jazz, exploring the evolution of jazz in the concert hall from Gershwin to Ellington to John Adams. Gershwin’s Concerto in F, the first large-scale jazz composition in a traditionally classical form, stands out as one of the most striking and original pieces of its time. Captivating pianist Joyce Yang makes her much-anticipated Colorado Symphony debut bringing a ‘poetic and sensitive pianism’ to Gershwin’s work. Ellington’s last major work, Three Black Kings, captures one of the greatest songwriters of all time exploring the orchestral form, while John Adams’ City Noir features virtuosic saxophonist Timothy McAllister in a work that evokes the tone of 20th century America as it harkens back to the golden age of jazz.

BRITTEN War Requiem, Op. 66

On the eve of the 100th anniversary of the November 11, 1918 Armistice that signaled the end of World War I, your Colorado Symphony presents a once-in-a-generation performance of Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece, War Requiem. Commissioned to mark the opening of a new cathedral for the city of Coventry in 1962 after a bombing destroyed the previous cathedral in 1940, Britten, a lifelong pacifist and conscientious objector during World War II, created this very public expression of his beliefs about ‘war and the pity of war.’ In a master stroke, he included texts by the First World War poet Wilfred Owen, providing an ironic commentary on the classic Latin Requiem Mass while serving as a reminder to future generations on the wickedness of war. Joined by the Colorado Symphony Chorus, the Colorado Children’s Chorale, and three vocal soloists, Brett Mitchell leads your Colorado Symphony in its first performance of this monumental undertaking since 2001.

Mendelssohn Double Concerto featuring Yumi Hwang-Williams

Kevin John Edusei, conductor
Yumi Hwang-Williams, violin
Anne-Marie McDermott, piano

MENDELSSOHN Concerto for Violin and Piano in D minor
SCHUBERT Symphony No. 9 in C major, D. 944 "The Great"

A mere fourteen years old when he composed it, Mendelssohn’s Double Concerto in D minor is one of his most brilliant early works. Guest conductor Kevin John Edusei directs Colorado Symphony Concertmaster Yumi Hwang-Williams and guest pianist Anne Marie McDermott in a stunning combination of unlikely forces as violin and piano dance, mimic, converse, and repeat in an electrifying performance. Schubert’s majestic Symphony No. 9, known as “The Great,” is a powerfully melodic work brimming with influence from Beethoven’s own 9th Symphony. Breathtaking and full of life, this music is a joy to behold.

Beethoven Symphony No. 7

Brett Mitchell, conductor
Mason Bates, electronica / composer
Joshua Roman, cello

MASON BATES Auditorium for Chamber Orchestra & Laptop
MASON BATES Cello Concerto
BEETHOVEN Symphony No. 7 in A major, Op. 92

Driving dance rhythms link this trio of works by Beethoven and Mason Bates. Brett Mitchell conducts Beethoven’s energetic Symphony No. 7, dubbed the ‘apotheosis of the dance’ by Wagner for the spinning, whirling motion at the heart of this constantly developing musical organism. The second movement – Allegretto – stands alone as a powerful, haunting piece of classical music and remains one of Beethoven’s most well known works. Joshua Roman makes his Colorado Symphony debut performing Mason Bates’ Cello Concerto written especially for Roman. Bates’ baroque thriller, Auditorium, haunts the orchestra with ghostly recordings of a baroque ensemble, making it essentially a work for two orchestras – one live, one dead.

Featuring musical depictions of ten paintings by his late friend, Viktor Hartmann, Mussorgsky’s work highlights varied moods and is connected throughout with a brilliant ‘Promenade’ theme that gives the sense of an art lover sauntering from piece to piece through a museum. 2018 Musical America Instrumentalist of the Year and GRAMMY Award®—Winning violinist Augustin Hadelich returns to your Colorado Symphony, bringing his lyrical, singing style to Barber’s lush and virtuosic Violin Concerto, while Ives’ Symphony No. 3, “The Camp Meeting,” evokes memories from the composer’s childhood through music of the era.

Featuring the Colorado Symphony Chorus, Colorado Children’s Chorale, and a cast of soloists, Carmina Burana is a true spectacle and one of the most well known pieces of the 20th century, combining powerful rhythms and robust vocals in a dynamic conclusion to an unforgettable season. Adam Schoenberg’s American Symphony begins the program with a piece reminiscent of Copland and Bernstein as it reflects the hope of America’s potential.
