Ravel’s Bolero

Riverwalk Center 150 W Adams Ave, Breckenridge, CO, United States

Maestro Pintscher comes to Summit County with an international program including Rachmaninoff's "The Isle of the Dead," a haunting and atmospheric orchestral tone poem that transports listeners to a mysterious and otherworldly realm, inspired by Arnold Böcklin's painting of the same name. Debussy's "Iberia" is a vibrant and impressionistic musical journey that intricately captures the essence of Spain through its colorful orchestration, rhythmic vitality, and evocative use of Spanish folk elements. This concert ends with Ravel's "Boléro," an enduring masterpiece characterized by its hypnotic repetition and gradual crescendo, building a relentless rhythmic intensity through a single, mesmerizing melodic theme.

Riverwalk Center 150 W Adams Ave, Breckenridge, CO, United States

Continuing with our theme for the season, the NRO performs Britten’s Four Sea Interludes, evocative orchestral vignettes that depict the changing moods and elements of the sea, conveying the atmospheric nuances of coastal life. Abel’s Global Warming reflects on the similarities between folk music of divergent, immigrant cultures, and celebrates these common threads. The program also includes one of the most popular and familiar string pieces, Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, a luminous and emotionally resonant composition that expresses a blend of romantic lyricism and classical elegance.

Event Series Masterworks

Canellakis Conducts Brahms and Wagner

Riverwalk Center 150 W Adams Ave, Breckenridge, CO, United States

The NRO is thrilled to welcome back podium Karina Canellakis, a musician of great repute and a powerful voice in today’s music scene. The third symphony by Brahms displays a lyricism and organic flow that evokes a sense of introspection, certainly influenced by the city’s proximity to the Rhine River. Wagner's "Forest Murmers" from "Siegfried" is a lush and enchanting orchestral interlude, depicting the magical atmosphere of a forest, with delicate textures and shimmering sounds that contribute to the opera's rich narrative and mythological themes. We return to the Rhine for Wagner’s “Dawn and Siegfrid’s Rhine Journey,” capturing the radiant beauty of dawn and the heroic fervor of the hero Siegfried at the climactic conclusion to Wagner’s Ring Cycle.

Liquid Interface gives us water in every form and explores the intersection of nature and technology through evocative and dynamic musical textures.

Season Finale: Strauss Alpine Symphony

The Season Finale opens with a reminder of the power of our natural world in Frank’s Contested Eden. You can hear the intersection of indigenous traditions and Western classical music beauty, painting a picture of California throughout the seasons and the harsh reality of wildfires at the door. The season concludes with Strauss’ monumental Alpine Symphony, which vividly depicts a journey through the Bavarian Alps, capturing the breathtaking scenery, changing weather, and the grandeur of nature with rich orchestrations and thematic developments. Though it was inspired by a day in the Alps, you will certainly recognize our own Ten Mile Range in the music.
