CPR Classical will share a weekly series of encore performances by the Colorado Symphony at 7 p.m. each Thursday during Colorado Spotlight.

This Thursday, hear saxophonist Branford Marsalis play Glazunov’s Saxophone Concerto, recorded at last season’s opening concert.

Here are a handful of the upcoming highlights:

  • Nov. 1: Mozart: Symphony No. 36, "Paris"

  • Jan. 8: Rachmaninoff: Symphony No. 2
  • Feb. 26: Britten: Piano Concerto No. 1 featuring pianist William Wolfram

The Thursday encore broadcasts continue through May and complement our new season of live Colorado Symphony broadcasts, which start Friday with Gil Shaham playing Brahms’ Violin Concerto.
