Dynamic Variation:

Prokofiev Piano Concerto No. 2 with Natasha Paremski

Nov 19, 2021 - Nov 21, 2021


Your Colorado Symphony welcomes back former Music Director Andrew Litton and Denver favorite Natasha Paremski for a program with a distinctly Russian flair. Paremski brings her signature fire and dynamic passion to Prokofiev’s romantic Second Piano Concerto, while his Classical Symphony subverts the expectations of the era in a work that is concise and playful, juxtaposing his own daring musical language with those more typical of Mozart’s time. Shostakovich's Ninth Symphony similarly harkens back to that bygone era, eschewing the sprawling, bombastic works of the time in a composition that is short, witty, and classically oriented. But where the Classical Symphony sought to provoke sincere, uncomplicated joy, the Ninth evokes a range of changing moods and emotions. The music of these two titans will shine in the hands of Maestro Litton.
