Why See Colorado Springs Philharmonic - Bolero?
Lindberg Leads Ravel's Bolero
The Colorado Springs Philharmonic welcomes two pre-eminent trombone masters to the Pikes Peak Center stage for a rousing and diverse program of works by Sibelius, Mozart, Tchaikovsky and Sandstrom, culminating in a stunning closing performance of Ravel's Bolero. Originally written for Belle Epoque dancer Ida Rubenstein in 1928, it is widely considered Ravel's most famous composition and is a stunning display of dance-infused orchestral color.
Swedish conductor, composer and trombonist extraordinaire, Christian Lindberg joins proceedings to lead the ensemble, also joining principal trombonist Bron Wright in Jan Sandsrom's Echoes of Eternity for two trombones. Mirroring Bolero's Spanish flavor, the double concerto pays homage to the Spanish city of Caceres with invigorating melodrama, humour and minimalist touches.
Sibelius - Finlandia
Leopold Mozart - Concerto for Alto Trombone
Tchaikovsky - Romeo and Juliet, Overture-Fantasy
Jan Sandstrom - Echoes of Eternity for Two Trombones

Performance date: 18 May 2019
