An Evening of Classical Music Insight and Learning
Calling all enquiring minds and ears! The Colorado Symphony presents the second concert in their LISTEN/HEAR program, a series of casual concerts in which they take the listener on a journey through the birth and evolution of the symphony. Live performances are accompanied by educational talks that give the audience insight into symphonic music, giving them a greater understanding of the popular classical form and the featured pieces.
Titled Anything But Innocent: The Hard-Core Romantics, the evening's program consists of works by the great romantic composers Beethoven, Mussorgsky, Dvorak, Wagner and Tchaikovsky. Colorado Symphony associate conductor Christopher Dragon and Principal cellist Austin Fisher will talk the audience through their harmony, melody and structure, in order to find out why these dramatic works remain so timeless.
Beethoven - Overture to Egmont Op. 84
Mussorgsky - A Night on Bald Mountain
Dvorak - Silent Woods
Wagner - Prelude and Liebestod from Tristan und Isolde
