An Alpine Symphony with Peter Oundjian

Friday, May 24, 2024 7:30PM Sunday, May 26, 2024 1:00PM
An Alpine Symphony with Peter Oundjian


Your Colorado Symphony and Principal Conductor Peter Oundjian present an unforgettable sendoff to our Centennial Season, highlighted by a fitting homage to the Centennial State with Richard Strauss’ An Alpine Symphony.

Musically recreating a day’s mountain climb, it begins in the hours before sunrise, which are painted in dark and somber tones before the brassy emergence of the sun sets the climbers on their way to a rhythmic, rising theme. A grand trombone fanfare and rich orchestral passages create the glorious panorama revealed at the summit while the descent is represented by falling intervals and a clever inversion of the rising theme heard during the ascent. Back at the mountain’s base, night has come as Strauss brings the listener full circle.

Pianist Bruce Liu — a rising star who rose to widespread renown in 2021 after winning the XVIII International Chopin Piano Competition — breathes new life into Prokofiev’s Third Piano Concerto, containing the composer’s trademark magic and virtuosity, part of a monumental season finale that will leave you simply spellbound.
