After repeated audience requests, the Chamber Orchestra begins an exploration of the underperformed symphonies of Max Bruch, ending our season in triumph. Also figuring prominently is an extremely special performance of Chopin’s rare Variations on Mozart’s “La ci Derem le Mano,” which Chopin composed at only 17 and which prompted Schumannn to declare, “Hats off, gentlemen, a genius!” UNC’s Adam Zukiewicz joins the Chamber Orchestra for his premiere performance in Colorado Springs. With a powerful overture by Farrenc and a playful set of dances by Oscar-winning composer Michael Abels, it’s the perfect ending to a magnificent season.
