Event Description

“Climate change is the existential challenge of our time, we ignore it at our peril. The Phil explores the consequences of human greed and indulgence through musical allegory, including Strauss’s vivid tone poem, Don Juan, and the world premiere of Drew Hemenger’s Ozymandias, featuring Matthew Plenk, tenor, and presenting the Boulder Phil Chorus in its inaugural performance. This piece draws upon Native American texts, UN climate reports and speeches by Greta Thunberg, in addition to Shelley’s famous poem.”

ABELS: Global Warming
HEMENGER: Ozymandias: To Sell a Planet (world premiere)
MOZART: Overture to Don Giovanni
WAGNER: Trauermusik from Gotterdammerung
