Simplicity and beauty are on display with Max Richter’s Four Seasons reshuffled and remixed for 2021. Britten’s Simple Symphony is a child’s imagination and recreation of the fun and ingenuity that a symphony can become. Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate’s Pisachi brings to the life the dances of Pueblo and Hopi cultures.

We are excited to bring together the seasons of life, dance, and music for a diverse array of programming that will bring joy and reflection to our audience.

The Four Seasons Recomposed by Max Richter, is a deconstructing and remix-ing of the traditional Vivaldi. The original score gets opened up note-by-note. The addition of the harp and piano to the original score, and the added colors and textures that Richter imbues create a new breath and depth to bring the score into the ears of the contemporary listener. Still highlighted are the bitter cold, and intense heat of Vivaldi’s masterwork.

Violinist Charles Wetherbee returns to Boulder Symphony bringing a wealth of experience and expertise from his varied career as a soloist, chamber musician, orchestral concertmaster and teacher. Performing the Seasons Recomposed will accentuate and highlight Wetherbee’s consummate skill as a versatile artist across the spectrum.

Jerod Impichchaachaaha’ Tate is a classical composer and citizen of the Chickasaw Nation in Oklahoma and is dedicated to the development of American Indian classical music. Pisachi draws specifically from Hopi and Pueblo Indian music, rhythms and form. The music brings together sounds and spirits of the American Indian Southwest, and was originally commissioned for the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Documerica.

You couldn’t get any simple than a child’s song! Benjamin Britten drew on melodies he wrote or heard between the ages of nine and twelve to compose his Simple Symphony. His descriptors impart the joy and innocence of creating this amazing work for strings: boisterous, playful, sentimental, and frolicsome – the dances, twists and turns of life!
