Event Details

Jean-Marie Zeitouni, conductor
Olga Kern, piano

Boulder-favorite and pianist Olga Kern returns to CMF to perform Beethoven’s Piano Concerto No. 5 with the CMF Chamber Orchestra for the final concert of the 2016 Festival! A nod to the self-proclaimed “Emperor” Napoleon, Beethoven’s last piano concerto is grandly proportioned, dazzlingly virtuosic and sublimely melodic. With Music Director Jean-Marie Zeitouni conducting, the program opens with Stravinsky’s concerto for orchestra “Dumbarton Oaks”, and concludes with Franz Schubert’s Symphony No. 5, considered by many to be a musical tribute to the composer’s idol, Mozart.

Stravinsky Concerto in E-flat Major “Dumbarton Oaks”
Schubert Symphony No.5 in B-flat Major
Beethoven Piano Concerto No.5 in E-flat Major “Emperor”
