Chopin Piano Concerto No. 2 with Emanuel Ax


After 18 months apart, guest conductor Peter Oundjian leads your Colorado Symphony in their long-awaited symphonic homecoming showcasing the legendary Emanuel Ax as featured soloist. Barber’s Adagio for Strings offers a poignant opening dedication to those lost, full of gripping harmonies that artfully convey the effect of courage in the face of tragedy, hope amid despair, and abiding love after a year of emotional and physical distancing. Ax — a famed GRAMMY-winning pianist — makes his highly anticipated Colorado Symphony return on Chopin’s poetic second Piano Concerto. One of the most celebrated and colorful works in the entire symphonic catalogue — Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition  orchestrated by Ravel — offers a stunning culmination to this symphonic homecoming. From its regal opening to its majestic finale, Mussorgsky’s depiction of a stroll through an art exhibit is a perennial favorite you simply won’t want to miss.
