The Colorado Symphony's Summer Seasonings presented by PCL trio of concerts concludes with the jewels in the crown of Russian music: an evening featuring the most popular works of Russian and Soviet-era composers on Friday, July 22. Resident conductor Scott O'Neil and the Colorado Symphony treat audiences to all their favorites at Summer Seasonings – Russian Masterpieces, including Tchaikovsky's Swan Lake Suite, Prokofiev's "The Montagues and Capulets" (also known as "Dance of the Knights") from the Romeo and Juliet Suite, and Shostakovich's Festive Overture. Concertgoers will also enjoy selected movements from Stravinsky's The Firebird, Rimsky-Korsakov's Mlada Suite, and Mussorsky's Pictures at an Exhibition, as well as Rimsky-Korsakov's "The Flight of the Bumblebee" - the instantly-recognizable orchestral interlude written for his opera, The Tale of Tsar Saltan.
