Event Description

“Our 75th season dawns with the Colorado premiere of Lawrence Golan’s Fantasia for Orchestra, a brooding-turned-bright composition originally written for violin that finds new life in the DPO Music Director’s quarantine re-orchestration. Lebanese musician Rony Barrak dazzles on the darbouka, or goblet drum, in his dramatic Middle Eastern composition, Beirut Sensations. The premiere concludes with Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s victory over self-doubt when inspiration finally struck like a bolt of lightning, culminating in his lustrous Symphony No. 5.”
