Program: Ben-Amots, World Premiere; Brahms, Nänie; Grieg, Peer Gynt
Josep Caballé-Domenech, conductor
“To thine own self be true!” Peer Gynt, the classic Norwegian tale, is brought to life fully narrated in a new translation by Alexander Platt. This marks my debut with Colorado Springs Philharmonic and my premiere singing Peer Gynt. This "concerto for symphony" features the Colorado Springs Chorale, who join the orchestra for Brahms’ elegiac Nänie. The program also features a world premiere from local composer Ofer Ben-Amots.
