SYMPHONIC FIRSTS CONDUCTED BY MARK WIGGLESWORTH

WHEN
From: January 21 2017 @ 7:30 pm
To: January 21 2017 @ 9:00 pm

WHERE: Boettcher Concert Hall

Renowned conductor Mark Wigglesworth takes the Colorado Symphony on a music history journey that veers around Europe with three first efforts from emerging masters. The program commences with Mozart’s Symphony No. 1 – which Wolfgang Amadeus wrote when he was all of eight years old. Franz Schubert’s first symphony was written when he was 16, and is marked by soaring trumpets and a pronounced maturity. In contrast, Johannes Brahms said he spent 21 years writing his Symphony No. 1, which he finished in 1876 when he was 43. Hear all three masterpieces in this concert weekend dedicated to “the firsts."

Take in vibrant, joyful and original music combining the traditions of 11 countries up and down Africa’s diverse Nile River basin. This “committed, euphoric international coalition” (The New York Times) of performers transcends language and cultural barriers to unite in harmony. "The Nile Project is the performing side of an effort that also includes education in music and environmental issues, raising awareness of the entire Nile basin as an ecosystem. With such vibrant music, the good intentions were a bonus; the Nile Project was a superb example of what I call small-world music, of what happens to traditions in the information age." -Jon Pareles, The New York Times Presented by the Artist Series
