BOULANGER: D'un Soir Triste
RACHMANINOFF: Piano Concerto No. 2, Op. 18
MUSSORGSKY (arr. RAVEL): Pictures at an Exhibition
Please join us for a post-performance talk with conductor Miguel Harth-Bedoya and musicians from the Colburn Orchestra.
Passion runs high in this program combining Lili Boulanger’s foreboding final composition, Rachmaninoff’s soulful second piano concerto, and the vibrant art gallery stroll that is Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition.
Miguel Harth-Bedoya, Emmy award-winning and Grammy-nominated conductor, is a master of color, drawing idiomatic interpretations from a diverse and wide range of repertoire in concerts across the globe. Celebrating more than 30 years of professional conducting, and with a deep commitment to passing his experience on to the next generation of musicians, he is currently the Mary Franks Thompson Director of Orchestral Studies at Baylor University, and Music Director of the Baylor Symphony Orchestra where in addition to performing, he teaches orchestral conducting at the undergraduate and graduate level.
Now in its 19th season, the Colburn Orchestra is the flagship ensemble of the Colburn Conservatory of Music. Under the direction of Music Director Yehuda Gilad, the Colburn Orchestra performs for Southern California audiences at venues such as the Walt Disney Concert Hall, Ambassador Auditorium, Royce Hall, The Broad Stage, Renée and Henry Segerstrom Concert Hall, and The Soraya.
