After conducting lauded performances of Mozart’s Requiem  in 2017 and Debussy’s La Mer in 2020, Jun Märkl returns leading your Colorado Symphony through two German romantic masterpieces and Beethoven’s dramatic Piano Concerto No. 3 featuring pianist Claire Huangci. Strauss’ Don Juan  is wildly modern for the time, and incredibly challenging for the orchestra, as evidenced by a horn player’s famous utterance prior to its premiere, “Dear God! What sin have we committed, for You to send us this rod for our backs!” Strauss’ Till Eulenspiegel’s Merry Pranks  is a tone poem depicting Till — a mischievous rogue who scorns authority — through brevity and humor, a delightful ode to one of the most colorful figures in German folklore that will come alive before your eyes in the hands of Maestro Märkl.
