Two charismatic young virtuosi and an effervescent conductor bring passion and energy to this wide-ranging program. Nicholas McGegan and violinist Simone Porter delighted their Aspen audience last summer during an evening of Baroque in Harris Concert Hall. They return as a pair to the Benedict Music Tent for Prokofiev’s lyrical First Violin Concerto. Tamás Pálfalvi, one of the most visionary and innovative trumpet players in the world, makes his Aspen debut as one of the soloists in Vivaldi’s sparkling Concerto for Two Trumpets. Also on the program, Holst pulls out all the stops as a brilliant orchestrator in his tribute to Walt Whitman’s ideals of beauty and Schubert's enchanting Fifth Symphony.
