Boulder Philharmonic: The Best of Boulder



Macky Auditorium, 1595 Pleasant Street, Boulder, 80503

Event Description

"In celebration of this beloved place we call home, we shine the spotlight on several of Boulder’s finest classical artists. Highlighting the lush sound of our string section, this showcase opens with Pulitzer Prize-winner Caroline Shaw’s hauntingly beautiful Entr’acte, which evokes distant echoes of Haydn’s String Quartet No. 67 in F major. Next, two of our own—oboists Sarah Bierhaus and Max Soto—take center stage for the cheeky, Baroque-inspired Extra(ordinarily) Fancy by Vietnamese-American composer Viet Cuong. 2008 Naumburg International Cello Competition winner and CU Boulder professor David Requiro joins the Boulder Phil for the first time to perform Tchaikovsky’s tribute to Mozart’s genius in his Rococo Variations. The performance ends in a blaze of contrapuntal glory in the Classical prodigy’s 41st and final Symphony: Mozart’s brilliant 'Jupiter' Symphony."
