SCHOENBERG Transfigured Night

Brilliant pianist Simone Dinnerstein returns to Boulder for two concertos, including the premiere of a Boulder Phil co-commission by Philip Glass, consciously inspired by Bach. Bach’s spirit also pervades the program through his G minor concerto and in a work by his son, struggling to both honor his father and assert his independence from him. After intermission, themes of forgiveness and redemption prevail in the lush, romantic Transfigured Night by Schoenberg, a man deeply influenced by Bach’s bold chromaticism and flawless voice leading.

“Arresting freshness and subtlety”
