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.
