Our Premiere Concert Series

Our MASTERWORKS CONCERT SERIES 2022-2023 Season Opener begins with a brand-new composition from our illustrious Music Director, William “Bill” Hill – his “Classical” Symphony No. 4. Bill’s newest symphony is composed in the classical style, with four movements.

ECO is extremely proud that Bill chooses to premiere his works with us. The orchestra notes that working with the composer himself – and the challenging nature of Bill’s compositions – makes the production of successful premiere performances all the more rewarding. 

The program continues with Haydn’s Symphony No. 101known by its colloquial name “The Clock” for the ticking rhythm throughout the second movement. This work is part of a group of the twelve London Symphonies that Haydn composed during his two visits to London. The 101st Symphony was composed during his second visit, between 1793 – 1794, and this group contains some of his most well-known works.

ECO’s Masterworks Concert Series continues with our Fall Concert, which will feature Soprano Nadya Hilland Tenor Michael Hoffman in a program consisting entirely of operatic favorites from Puccini, Mozart, Bizet, and Lehar. Check back soon for more information and the full program list!

The second half of the season begins with ECO’s Spring Concert. The program begins with Claude Debussy’s Petite Suite – originally composed for piano four-hands, ECO will be performing the orchestral version. Next, we are thrilled to announce that celebrated concert pianist, Steinway Artist, and pedagogue Stephanie Cheng will be joining ECO to perform Clara Schumann’s Piano Concerto in A Minor, Op. 7! This is a truly stellar work by Clara Schumann and we cannot wait to perform with Ms. Cheng. Our Spring Concert concludes with Georges Bizet’s monumental Symphony in C. What a program!

ECO’s 2022 – 2023 Masterworks Concert Series will conclude with a massive program of classical masterworks. The program begins with Ludwig van Beethoven’s Overture to The Creatures of Prometheus, Op 43. Next, ECO is very excited to announce that Colorado Symphony principal violist Basil Vendryes will join us to perform a double-helping of works featuring the viola! First, Max Bruch’s Romanze, Op. 85 for Viola and String Orchestra. Then, another brand-new composition by ECO Music Director William Hill – his Concerto for Viola, Strings, and Percussion.

Finally, ECO will close out the season with Ludwig van Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6 in F Major, Op. 68 – the “Pastorale” Symphony. This is the only Beethoven symphony in which Beethoven specifically included authentic programmatic details – and it has been a favorite of audiences worldwide since its premiere.
