RACHMANINOFF Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43
COPLAND Symphony No. 3

Colorado Symphony Music Director Andrew Litton leads this wonderfully diverse springtime program, featuring Kirill Gerstein, the only pianist to win the Gilmore Artist Award and the Gilmore Young Artist Award, performing Sergei Rachmaninoff’s iconic Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. For the finale, Litton conducts the orchestra in Symphony No. 3, Aaron Copland’s last symphony and the origin of his instantly recognizable, Fanfare for the Common Man. Intended as a patriotic statement, the entire work pulses with Americana.

Don't forget to arrive early for the prelude at 6:30 pm (12:00 Sunday) hosted by Catherine Beeson. Preludes are insightful discussions that take place before each Masterworks performance and are included with your concert ticket.
