Jun Märkl, conductor, Yulia Van Doren, soprano, Abigail Nims, mezzo, Derek Chester, tenor, Andrew Garland, baritone, Colorado Symphony Chorus, Duain Wolfe, director. R. STRAUSS Death and Transfiguration, Op. 24m, MOZART Requiem, K. 626. After leading a lauded performance of our 2014 All-Beethoven program, Jun Märkl returns to Boettcher Concert Hall to conduct the internationally praised Colorado Symphony Chorus in Mozart’s immortal Requiem. Ironically, Mozart died before finishing his Requiem, and supposedly wrote instructions for completion on since-lost “little scraps of paper.” However mythical the conclusion of this masterpiece may be, its dramatic and captivating spirit endures. Strauss’ Death and Transfiguration — a tone poem depicting the death of an artist — complements the immortal Requiem in a program that proves the longevity of brilliance. [Organizer's description]
