Normally a quiet day, this particular Monday features a variety of performances: Rachmaninoff's soulful Cello Sonata in G Minor, the Puccini double bill "Suor Angelica" and "Gianni Schicchi" and veteran soprano Sylvia McNair singing cabaret.
It's another packed weekend. Friday at 6 p.m., pianist Garrick Ohlsson performs the poetic Schumann Piano Concerto with the Aspen Chamber Symphony, and soprano Susanna Phillips sings Britten’s song cycle "Les Illuminations." Sunday's Aspen Festival Orchestra program features pianist Yefim Bronfman in Bartok's Third Piano Concerto.
Tonight is the premiere of Aspen Opera Theater Center’s Puccini double bill of "Suor Angelica" and "Gianni Schicchi": tragedy and comedy all in one evening. Also tonight, pianist Garrick Ohlsson performs a recital at Harris Hall. Works by Beethoven, Chopin, Schubert and American composer Charles Griffes are on his program.
Tonight at 8:30, the American String Quartet performs their annual concert at Harris Concert Hall. On the program are works by Haydn and Brahms, as well as the dramatic First String Quartet by 20th-century Czech composer Leos Janacek.
