GREETINGS! Remember when a house cost $6,600 and gas was 14-cents a gallon? When kitty litter was invented, aliens were landing in Roswell and major league baseball was first integrated? That’s a slice of our world 70 years ago when famed conductor Antonia Brico founded the Denver Philharmonic Orchestra (known then as Denver Businessmen’s Orchestra). Just as the world around us has changed over the past 70 years, so has the overall DPO concert experience. We hope you continue to enjoy and support the

social media. The DPO’s average concert attendance has skyrocketed from 350 people per concert in 2011 to a record-breaking 987 last season! No doubt, Maestro Brico and the people of Denver could never have imagined the DPO touring China, building a stage, winning two Emmys®, placing first in the Ictus International Music Competition, or partnering with the Bavarian Philharmonic in Munich, Germany — but, we have! While times and the trappings of the concert experience have changed, some things have remained the same — most importantly the music. We have never lost focus on providing our community’s musicians a quality place to showcase their talents and an outstanding live musical performance for people like you! We are excited that you are part of our 70th Season. Enjoy! Sincerely,

Jon Olafson President of the Board, DPO  3

SEPTEMBER 29 • OKTOBERFEST by BETSY SCHWARM

Concerto for Violin and Oboe in C minor, BWV 1060r Johann Sebastian Bach  (1685 – 1750) In the concerto for violin and oboe by Johann Sebastian Bach, you may have a sense of déjà vu, even if you are sure you’ve never heard a concerto combining these two instruments. Documentary evidence from the composer’s time reveals that he’d written the piece in the mid-1730s, then re-imagined it as a concerto for two harpsichords. That later form is the one more Pre-Hamilton v. Burr, Bach challenged French organist Louis Marchand

Magnificat in C, D. 486 Franz Schubert  (1797 – 1828) The Magnificat in C major by Franz Schubert, composed in 1815 or 1816, sets the Biblical verses having to do with Mary’s song of praise upon learning that she is destined to give birth to the son of God. In line with Viennese tastes of the time, Schubert set only a portion of the available text. Like the great majority of Schubert’s works, it Just under 5' tall,

Jerks. Duration: 10 minutes

He calls upon four vocal soloists (though the soprano gets most of the spotlight), as well as a four-part chorus, and an ensemble of two oboes, two bassoons, two trumpets, timpani, organ, and strings. Splendor is found particularly in the opening and closing pages: bright and joyous with all the high spirits of a comic opera finale. Two firm chords close this section, allowing the central pages on the text “Deposuit potentes” to proceed in more tender fashion. A new theme is introduced by oboe before it passes to the vocal soloists, though throughout this portion the oboe remains equally as prominent as the singers. With the concluding Gloria, the chorus returns to the spotlight in utterly ecstatic fashion. Broader phrases are frequently studded with declarations of “Amen,” and overall, Schubert’s Magnificat concludes in as celebratory fashion, just as it began.

Symphony no. 2 in D, op. 73 Johannes Brahms  (1833 – 1897) Johannes Brahms was on summer holiday when he wrote his Symphony no. 2 in Pörtschach-an-der-Wörthersee in the southern Austrian Alps in 1877. Afterward, he joked to his publisher Simrock that the result was something thoroughly melancholy, though the music itself reveals the remark was made wholly tongue-in-cheek. Nowhere in Brahms would have been a great Coloradan. He enjoyed hiking Italian hills in solitary composing retreats. But could he handle a 14er? Duration: 43 minutes

the piece is there anything approaching sorrow, and ultimately, it would become the most popular of his four symphonies. When the work premiered in Vienna, in 1877, the most influential of the city’s music critics, Eduard Hanslick, called it “a great, unqualified success,” going on to observe, “The new symphony is radiant with healthy freshness and clarity. It is readily intelligible, although it offers plenty to listen to and think about… It provided irrefutable proof that one (not everyone, to be sure) can still write symphonies, and, moreover, in the old forms and on the old foundations.” Brahms was rather conservative in style: this was fine with Hanslick, and in the long run of history, listeners and performers alike have found no reason for complaint.
