BRAHMS CONDUCTED BY THE DRAGON <p>Join Associate Conductor Christopher Dragon as he teams with pianist and former Colorado Symphony Music Director Jeffrey Kahane. For his return to Denver, Kahane tackles the singular piano concerto of Robert Schumann. Leading off the program, the Brahms opener, Nanie -- funeral song in German -- is a meditation on mortality. After the dramatic start, Schumann's energetic and eclectic Piano Concerto provides some lightness, and the melodic masterwork that is Brahms' Symphony No. 3 follows.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Tchaikovsky Symphony No. 4 <p>Marcelo Lehninger, conductor <br />Vadim Gluzman, violin</p> <p>TCHAIKOVSKY Marche Slave, Op. 31 <br /> TCHAIKOVSKY Symphony No. 4 in F minor, Op. 3</p> <p>Dubbed "formidable," "technically assured," and "emotional," Brazilian-born Marcelo Lehninger makes his debut as guest conductor of the Colorado Symphony with violin soloist Vadim Gluzman. Lehninger brings his diverse repertoire to the slate with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky to begin and end the concert with Marche Slave and Symphony No. 4. In between is Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 2, featuring Israeli-born Gluzman. The piece opens with hints of Russian folk music but swiftly transitions with Spanish flare and a nod to influences in the castanet-laden third movement. Marche Slave, or Serbo-Russian March, is an apt starter, a tone poem that was originally written to benefit injured Serbian veterans after the Serbo-Turkish War of 1876-78. The grand finale, Symphony No. 4, among Tchaikovsky's most popular works, is a meticulously structured meditation on fate in four movements.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

MOZART PERFORMED BY JASON SHAFER <p>Principal Clarinetist Jason Shafer makes his debut as soloist performing Mozart's Clarinet Concerto. This work provides a showcase for the talents of Shafer, who joined the Symphony at the beginning of the 2013/14 season. One of Mozart's last works, it highlights the interplay between the orchestra and the clarinet soloist. The program concludes with Dukas's La Péri and Rimsky Korsakov's Scheherazade. This 1888 work is a musical adaptation of "A Thousand and One Nights" (or The Arabian Nights).</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

On the Beautiful Blue Danube <p>Kevin John Edusei, conductor <br />Gabriel Preisser, narrator</p> <p>J. STRAUSS On the Beautiful Blue Danube, Op. 314 <br /> H.K. GRUBER Frankenstein!! <br /> BRAHMS Piano Quartet in G minor, Op. 25</p> <p>A wonderfully eclectic and offbeat program built around Heinz Karl Gruber's indescribable 1978 work, Frankenstein!! which includes musicians inflating and popping paper bags as Gabriel Preisser narrates. Gruber pulls out all of the stops, and Preisser's baritone -- which anchored the Symphony's 2014-15 production of The Music Man -- likewise underpins this contemporary work laced with dark humor and unpredictability. The program provides a contrasting lead-in to Frankenstein!! with Johann Strauss, Jr.'s instantly recognizable waltz, The Blue Danube, and ends with the lush Brahms-Schoenberg Piano Quartet.</p> America/North_Dakota/Center

Mahler Symphony No. 3 Conducted by Andrew Litton Andrew Litton, conductor <br /> Michelle deYoung, mezzo <br /> Colorado Symphony Chorus, Duain Wolfe, director <br /> Colorado Children's Chorale, Deborah DeSantis, artistic director <p> MAHLER Symphony No. 3 in D minor </p> <p> These performances mark Andrew Litton's fond farewell as Music Director of the Colorado Symphony after three years at the helm. In this concert he takes patrons in Denver on a musical journey with Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 3. The 99-minute, six-movement masterpiece is far from a concert staple, largely because of the symphony's musical challenges and the large number of musicians required. Soloist Michelle DeYoung is a local favorite, a mezzo-soprano vocalist with an international reputation. DeYoung's credentials are impeccable: The 2003 recording of Symphony No.3 with Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony won Michelle a GRAMMY&reg; award for Best Classical Album. </p> America/North_Dakota/Center
