Colorado Symphony: Prokofiev with Paremski -- Saturday, November 20 at 7:30 p.m.
Giveaway 17 runs Monday, 11/15 through Tuesday, 11/16 at 5pm.
Natasha Paremski brings her signature fire and dynamic passion to Prokofiev’s romantic Second Piano Concerto, while his Classical Symphony subverts the expectations of the era in a work that is concise and playful. Shostakovich's Ninth Symphony similarly harkens back to that bygone era, eschewing the sprawling, bombastic works of the time in a composition that is short, witty, and classically oriented. But where the Classical Symphony sought to provoke sincere, uncomplicated joy, the Ninth evokes a range of changing moods and emotions.

Contest deadline for Giveaway 14 is Friday 11/5, at 4:00 p.m.
About the film: "In spite of rejections from the establishment of classical music and being told 'girls can’t do that,' Marin Alsop persisted and never let go of her childhood dream of becoming a conductor. The film features a combination of intimate interviews with the Maestra, a look into her private life, unseen archival footage with her mentor Leonard Bernstein, and Vérité scenes conducting different orchestras and teaching the next wave of conductors who, like her, were being excluded from the classical music canon." (DFF)
New: Thanks to the Denver Film Festival, we will select two winners for this giveaway! Each winner receives a pair of tickets to the Sunday matinee screening of The Conductor. In addition, all tickets for Denver Film Festival events taking place at the Denver Botanic Gardens are good for admission to the Gardens from 9am to 4pm on the day of the event.

Giveaway #13 runs Wednesday, 11/3 through Thursday, 11/4.
One of Beethoven's most beloved and well-known works is the Allegretto from his Seventh Symphony, dubbed the "apotheosis of dance" due to the spinning motion at the center of the composition. A pair of rising stars, conductor and violinist, make their debuts at Boettcher Hall, with Paul Huang lending his virtuoso style to the Bruch Violin Concerto and Valentina Peleggi leading the Colorado Symphony. Clarice Assad's Sin fronteras incorporates elements of her South American heritage into a work that imagines the musical synergy that comes from tearing down invisible cultural boundaries.
