Colorado Music Festival 2019 season announced

The Colorado Music Festival (CMF) announced the 2019 season and the appointment of conductor Peter Oundjian as its next Music Director.

This year, CMF presents a special concert series that traces Beethoven’s influence from the 19th century to the present day. Programs explore Beethoven’s path to the later Romantics, such as Verdi, Respighi and Rachmaninoff; his radical premonitions of Modernism; his impact on the Neoclassicism of Stravinsky and Prokofiev; and his influence on the Minimalist textures and techniques of Philip Glass. The festival concludes with Mahler’s Symphony No. 3, a work deeply indebted to Beethoven; the final movement of Mahler’s symphony famously evokes the slow movement of Beethoven’s last complete work, his String Quartet in F Major, Op. 135.

For a one-of-a-kind experience make Colorado Music Festival at the Chautauqua Auditorium your summer destination. Click here to learn more about the 2019 CMF season. Subscriptions and individual tickets go on sale Monday, March 11 at 10:00 AM.
