Mozart Piano Concerto No. 24

Jan 15, 2021 - Jan 17, 2021


Your Colorado Symphony and conductor Peter Oundjian usher in the start of a new decade of exquisite symphonic music with Dvořák's vibrant Eighth Symphony – a lively ode to the Bohemian folk music he so adored. Celebrated pianist Gabriela Montero makes her Colorado Symphony debut as featured soloist on Mozart's dark and stormy Piano Concerto No. 24 – one of only two concertos Mozart wrote in a minor key, illustrating a deliberate conveyance of a moodier and more tempestuous composition than past concertos from his exalted career. Strauss' Overture to Die Fledermaus is utterly poignant, both musically and dramatically, providing an ideal opening to this showcase of musical giants.
