Beyond the Performance

Stefan Jackiw on speaking to an audience

“I believe speaking to an audience can be a wonderful thing. First, giving the pieces some context can help first-time listeners more deeply appreciate what they’re hearing, and it can also give those familiar with the piece something new to listen for. I think speaking to an audience promotes more active listening. Also, as both a performer and listener, I find that when musicians speak from the stage, it breaks down a barrier between them and the audience. It creates of feeling of togetherness that allows for more intimacy and vulnerability in the hall. It makes us feel that we’re all in this together, exploring the worlds of Brahms, Beethoven, Ives, etc.”

Boulder Phil celebrates Rachmaninoff’s 150-years

Sergei Rachmaninoff was born on April 1, 1873. Considered one of the most influential and well-known Romantic composers, Rachmaninoff said, “Music is enough for a lifetime, but a lifetime is not enough for music.” In celebration of his 150th birthday, Boulder Phil presents two of his most quintessential works this season, beginning with the tour de force Symphonic Dances on March 25. Followed by his beloved Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, featuring piano virtuoso Angela Cheng on April 22.
