WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART PRAGUE SYMPHONY
BILL DOUGLAS SONGS & DANCES FOR OBOE & STRINGS
INGRID ANDERSON, OBOE
JOHANN SEBASTIAN BACH DOUBLE VIOLIN CONCERTO
PHOENIX AVALON, VIOLIN
KEYNES CHEN, VIOLIN
While Mozart's music was often met with resistance in Vienna, Prague always welcomed him with open arms. This three movement symphony is a savvy and intrepid example of Mozart's late period, which influenced symphonic music for generations to come.
Showcasing soloists from within the Boulder Symphony, we feature principal oboe Ingrid Anderson performing the deft and rhythmically driving Songs & Dances for Oboe & Strings from local composer Bill Douglas. Phoenix Avalon returns to solo alongside Concertmaster Yin-Feng Keynes Chen on the Bach Double Violin Concerto. Johann Sebastian Bach's contrapuntal and learned style is considered the precursor to all musical genres that followed, including classical, romantic and jazz. Avalon and Chen bring Bach to life with this dueling violin duet.
Join Ron Nadel for a lively pre-concert discussion at 6:15 PM in the Chapel.
