This Sunday, July 30 at 4:00, the Aspen Festival Orchestra presents a concert featuring the very popular Theofanidis's Dreamtime Ancestors, the world premiere of Alan Fletcher's Piano Concerto, Stravinsky's Firebird, and Renee Fleming singing songs of Michael Tilson Thomas and Bjork/Hans Ek.
For the third time this season, Aspen Public Radio's Classical Host Chris Mohr will be hosting a live broadcast of this Sunday afternoon concert. We'll also include extensive interviews with pianist Inon Barnaton, who is performing the concerto premiere, and superstar soprano Renee Fleming.
Later this season, Chris will also be hosting live broadcasts of the Sharon Isbin guitar recital August 5, the Mozart opera La Clemenza di Tito August 17, and the final concert at the Benedict Music Tent August 20 of the Berlioz Damnation of Faust.
