Colorado Music Festival: Olga Kern and Grieg’s Peer Gynt



Chautauqua Auditorium, 900 Baseline Rd, Boulder, CO 80302

Event Description

"Welcome back, Festival favorite Olga Kern! Fresh off a celebration of Rachmaninoff’s 150th anniversary, Kern performs his Second Piano Concerto — a success from its inception, this memorable concerto’s themes that have been borrowed by countless films, Sinatra songs, and more. After intermission, Colorado Public Radio’s Kabin Thomas narrates the outlandish tale of Peer Gynt, a hopeless yarn-spinner who lies and sneaks his way through many misadventures and ultimately learns his lesson. Audiences will immediately recognize Grieg’s music, including the unforgettable 'In the Hall of the Mountain King' and 'Morning Mood.' Guest conductor Rune Bergmann leads this crowd-pleasing program, which opens with Vivian Fung’s inspirational 'Prayer.'"
