Philip Sawyers: Hommage to Kandinsky
Gustav Mahler: Symphony No. 2 in C minor
April Fredrick, soprano
Stacey Rishoi, mezzo-soprano

The Boulder Concert Chorale ends its season performing at Macky Auditorium with the MahlerFest Orchestra in Symphony No. 2 by Gustav Mahler. This work was one of Mahler’s most popular and successful works during his lifetime. It was voted the fifth greatest symphony of all time in a survey of conductors by BBC Music Magazine.

The concert will open with “Homage to Kandinsky,” British composer Philip Sawyers’s response to an exhibit of Kandinsky’s work at the Tate Modern in London. “The developmental journey is one that many artists and composers undertake, and the whole experience seemed to mirror my own journey,” said Sawyers.
