FOURTEENERS 2017-18

BCO’s 14th season, named after our beloved mountains, is a return to our roots and highlights some of the best pieces of the classical period and beyond, with exciting concerti, chamber concerts, and Mozart’s Requiem.

Our season begins in October, with Mozart’s Sinfonia Concertante (featuring violinist Sharon Park and violist Andrew Krimm) and his Symphony No. 29. We’ll continue with another concerto in November, with pianist Mina Gajic and violinist Zachary Carrettin of the Boulder Bach Festival joining us for Mendelssohn’s Concerto for Violin and Piano.

We’ll step away from the classical period briefly in December to present Rodrigo’s Concierto de Aranjuez for guitar (featuring Chaconne Klaverenga), and De Frumeri’s Pastoral Suite, Op. 13 (featuring our own Cobus du Toit on flute). While Rodrigo’s piece is well known, Swedish composer de Frumerie is not a household name, and Maestro Saless and du Toit are excited to present this work to the Boulder community.

Mini Chamber Concerts in January and March will feature Coleman Itzkoff on cello, Alin Melik-Adamyan on piano, and the Altius Quartet, the University of Colorado Boulder’s Fellowship String Quartet.

Vocal music will not be neglected this season: soprano Christie Conover will join us to perform Beethoven’s Egmont Incidental Suite in February, while in March, we will once again collaborate with the Boulder Chorale, this time to perform Mozart’s Reqiuem.

We hope you will join us for this exciting season of concerti, familiar favorites, and novelties. Get your season pass today!
