GERSHWIN CONCERTO IN F <p>Brett Mitchell, conductor<br />Joyce Yang, piano<br />Timothy McAllister, saxophone</p> <p>ELLINGTON Three Black Kings<br />GERSHWIN Concerto in F<br />JOHN ADAMS City Noir</p> <p>Your Colorado Symphony celebrates three titans of American music with an evening of urban symphonic jazz, exploring the evolution of jazz in the concert hall from Gershwin to Ellington to John Adams. Gershwin’s Concerto in F, the first large-scale jazz composition in a traditionally classical form, stands out as one of the most striking and original pieces of its time. Captivating pianist Joyce Yang makes her much-anticipated Colorado Symphony debut bringing a ‘poetic and sensitive pianism’ to Gershwin’s work. Ellington’s last major work, Three Black Kings, captures one of the greatest songwriters of all time exploring the orchestral form, while John Adams’ City Noir features virtuosic saxophonist Timothy McAllister in a work that evokes the tone of 20th century America as it harkens back to the golden age of jazz.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Schubert Unfinished Symphony <p>Carlos Kalmar, conductor<br />Michael Thornton, horn</p> <p>GOULD Spirituals for Orchestra<br />GLIÈRE Concerto for Horn in B-flat major, Op. 91<br />SCHUBERT Symphony in B minor, D. 759, "Unfinished"<br />WAGNER Prelude to Die Meistersinger</p> <p>In his first Colorado Symphony appearance since 2004, guest conductor Carlos Kalmar leads the orchestra in a performance of varied works. Glière’s sweeping and unprecedentedly demanding Concerto for Horn is performed by Principal Horn Michael Thornton. Contrary to its name, Schubert’s “Unfinished” Symphony provides a complete, essential symphonic experience despite the mystery surrounding its incomplete status. In a stirring conclusion to the program, Wagner’s bright and virtuosic Prelude to Die Meistersinger introduces the opera’s most important themes in a beautifully self-contained fashion, making it a magnificent concert piece.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Britten War Requiem <p>Brett Mitchell, conductor<br />Amanda Majeski, soprano<br />Nicholas Phan, tenor<br />James Westman, baritone<br />Colorado Symphony Chorus, Duain Wolfe, director<br />Colorado Children's Chorale, Deborah DeSantis, artistic director</p> <p>BRITTEN War Requiem, Op. 66</p> <p>On the eve of the 100th anniversary of the November 11, 1918 Armistice that signaled the end of World War I, your Colorado Symphony presents a once-in-a-generation performance of Benjamin Britten’s masterpiece, War Requiem. Commissioned to mark the opening of a new cathedral for the city of Coventry in 1962 after a bombing destroyed the previous cathedral in 1940, Britten, a lifelong pacifist and conscientious objector during World War II, created this very public expression of his beliefs about ‘war and the pity of war.’ In a master stroke, he included texts by the First World War poet Wilfred Owen, providing an ironic commentary on the classic Latin Requiem Mass while serving as a reminder to future generations on the wickedness of war. Joined by the Colorado Symphony Chorus, the Colorado Children’s Chorale, and three vocal soloists, Brett Mitchell leads your Colorado Symphony in its first performance of this monumental undertaking since 2001.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Dvorák Symphony No. 9 <p>Brett Mitchell, conductor<br />Damon Gupton, narrator</p> <p>COPLAND Lincoln Portrait<br />JOSEPH SCHWANTNER New Morning for the World (Daybreak of Freedom)<br />DVORÁK Symphony No. 9 in E minor, Op. 95, “From the New World”</p> <p>View the American experiment through the prism of three prominent composers as they reflect their observations of who we were during the Civil War, who we were during the civil rights movement, and who we’ve always strived to be in a trio of thematically tied works. Noted Actor Damon Gupton, known for his roles in Criminal Minds, Deadline, and La La Land, brings the words of Abraham Lincoln in Lincoln Portrait and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. in New Morning for the World (Daybreak of Freedom) to life as Copland and Schwantner incorporate narrative passages and a broad lyrical scoring that sounds unmistakably American. In his renowned Symphony No. 9, popularly known as the “New World Symphony,” Dvorák incorporates influences of Native American musical rhythms, African-American spirituals, and the wide-open spaces he encountered on a trip through America’s heartland in the early 1890s in a work of beauty and relevance.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Brett Mitchell conducts Beethoven’s energetic Symphony No. 7, dubbed the ‘apotheosis of the dance’ by Wagner for the spinning, whirling motion at the heart of this constantly developing musical organism. The second movement &#8211; Allegretto &#8211; stands alone as a powerful, haunting piece of classical music and remains one of Beethoven’s most well known works. Joshua Roman makes his Colorado Symphony debut performing Mason Bates’ Cello Concerto written especially for Roman. Bates’ baroque thriller, Auditorium, haunts the orchestra with ghostly recordings of a baroque ensemble, making it essentially a work for two orchestras &#8211; one live, one dead.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Berlioz Symphonie Fantastique <p>Brett Mitchell, conductor<br />Conrad Tao, piano</p> <p>MISSY MAZZOLI Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres)<br />RAVEL Piano Concerto in G major<br />BERLIOZ Symphonie fantastique, Op. 14</p> <p>Brett Mitchell conducts your Colorado Symphony in a contrasting program of works both old and new. Berlioz’s bombastic, boisterous Symphonie fantastique is one of the first to tell a complete story through pure orchestral music as he details his own personal pursuit of Harriet Smithson, the Shakespearean actress who later became his wife. Using a recurrent melodic theme to tie the five movements together, Berlioz foreshadows the Wagnerian Leitmotif in a programmatic work that shows the range of human emotions. Featured soloist Conrad Tao performs Ravel’s Piano Concerto, a colorful Gershwin-inspired work with American spirit and jazz flavors while Missy Mazzoli’s Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres) contains elements of Ravel’s impressionistic nature as it presents music in the shape of a solar system as a collection of rococo loops twist around each other within a larger orbit.</p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center

Danny Elfman Violin Concerto featuring Sandy Cameron <p>Christopher Dragon, conductor<br />Sandy Cameron, violin</p> <p>HERRMANN Suite from Psycho<br />RAVEL Mother Goose (complete ballet)<br />DANNY ELFMAN Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, "Eleven Eleven"</p> <p>Associate conductor Christopher Dragon leads your Colorado Symphony in a weekend celebration of film score composers and those who influenced them. Herrmann’s ingenious use of strings conveys a “black and white sound” on his suite from Psycho, which mirrors the black and white images of Hitchcock’s haunting cinematic thriller. Ravel, who heavily influenced future generations of film composers, originally wrote Mother Goose as a piano duet but later revised and expanded the original work into an orchestrated piece. The program is capped by the legendary Danny Elfman, who composed the scores for treasured films such as Batman, The Nightmare Before Christmas, and Good Will Hunting. Brilliant soloist Sandy Cameron performs the Colorado premiere of Elfman’s Concerto for Violin and Orchestra, “Eleven Eleven,” a piece she helped debut in 2017.</p> <p> </p> 1400 Curtis St. Denver, CO America/North_Dakota/Center
