Our 34th Season is on the horizon, and we are gearing up for a vibrant summer of music in the beautiful Vail Valley. We remain flexible and optimistic as the season approaches, and we appreciate your patience as we finalize our programming.
Bravo! Vail Music Festival showcases four phenomenal orchestras over the course of the season: Academy of St Martin in the Fields, Dallas Symphony Orchestra, The Philadelphia Orchestra, and New York Philharmonic.
As in summers past, chamber music will play a vital role this year, with programs highlighting both old favorites and contemporary works. The return of free concerts throughout the summer will bring no-cost programs to the community in an approachable way.
DENÈVE LEADS PHILADELPHIA
THE PHILADELPHIA ORCHESTRA
Stéphane Denève, conductor
Jean-Efflam Bavouzet, piano
RAVEL Pavane pour une infante défunte
BEETHOVEN Piano Concerto No. 2 in B-flat major, Op. 19
RAVEL Le Tombeau de Couperin
PROKOFIEV Symphony No. 1, Op. 25, “Classical”
This beautifully balanced program leads listeners from profound emotional depths to irrepressible bursts of merriment. Beethoven’s Piano Concerto is a jovial exchange between orchestra and soloist, while Ravel draws on the graceful elegance of Baroque dances to create a musical post-war memorial. Prokofiev wittily juxtaposes his own daring musical language with elegant Mozartian gestures.
