Classical music Gordon has discovered with some insights to make this genre accessible

Beethoven’s Concerto No. 4 Second Movement in G Major: The piano speaks for Beethoven, while the orchestra pierces through to remind of the brevity and tragedies of life.

Performances for the 2019-2020 season by the Colorado Symphony Orchestra that Gordon recommends and will be attending. This year is the 250th anniversary of Beethoven’s birth, so plan on enjoying the numerous featured performances by the CSO of The Master’s music!

Suggestion: If you are unfamiliar with music for each program, download to your Apple Music (Spotify, Pandora or other service), and give each song several play-throughs before attending the CSO concert. The Colorado Symphony Orchestra at Boettcher Concert Hall in downtown Denver is a top-rate orchestra with a dynamic music director.
