Brahms and Bernstein

CMF Music Director Laureate Michael Christie returns to Boulder to continue a longtime collaboration with pianist Orion Weiss, in a program featuring Johannes Brahms’ tumultuous and quietly impassioned Piano Concerto No. 1. Christie rounds out the program by leading the CMF orchestra in Charles Ives’ “The Unanswered Question,” a spatial work comprising layers of sound; along with Leonard Bernstein’s fanfare “Shivaree” and his beautifully integrated, single-movement Symphonic Suite from the 1954 movie, “On the Waterfront,” which won 8 Academy Awards and was ranked the 8th best movie of all time by the American Film Institute.

Program:
Bernstein Shivaree
Ives The Unanswered Question
