For the last year, Andrew Litton has served as the Colorado Symphony’s part-time artistic advisor. In August, he was named full-time music director, following in the footsteps of Marin Alsop and Jeffrey Kahane, who stepped down in 2010. Litton opens the CSO’s season this weekend with a program featuring saxophonist Branford Marsalis. Litton talks to Ryan Warner.
