Respighi Pines of Rome


Traverse the Italian countryside with Respighi’s Fountains of Rome  and Pines of Rome  — the first two entries in his “Roman Trilogy” — painting a dazzling symphonic portrait of light and land, while masterfully depicting Rome’s iconic scenery. Pianist Joyce Yang, whose playing was dubbed “vivid and beautiful” by The New York Times,  returns to Boettcher Concert Hall as featured soloist on Mozart’s dark and tempestuous Piano Concerto No. 24, a noticeably moodier and more volatile concerto than previous works from the composer’s lionized career. Led by electrifying Venezuelan-born conductor José Luis Gomez, your Colorado Symphony begins the program with Gabriela Lena Frank's "Apu: Tone Poem for Orchestra", depicting the mischievous Apu — a mountain spirit from Andean Peruvian lore — leaping amongst the region’s rocks, rivers, and mountain peaks in an energetic frolic that bounces around the entire orchestra. This is a transportive performance sure to carry away your winter doldrums.
