Boulder Phil - Bach Transfigured

Brilliant pianist Simone Dinnerstein returns to Boulder including the premiere of a Boulder Phil co-commission by Philip Glass, consciously inspired by Bach. Bach’s spirit also pervades the program through his G minor concerto and in a work by his son, struggling to both honor his father and assert his independence from him. Themes of forgiveness and redemption prevail in the lush, romantic Transfigured Night by Schoenberg, a man deeply influenced by Bach’s bold chromaticism and flawless voice leading.

“Arresting freshness and subtlety”

6:30 PM - Free pre-concert talk with Michael Butterman and Simone Dinnerstein.
