Let the Boulder Philharmonic set the mood this Valentine's Day with an evening overflowing with some of the most romantic music ever composed. First, violin virtuoso Philippe Quint, a multiple Grammy-nominated artist who's played everywhere from Carnegie Hall in New York to the Gewandhaus in Leipzig, dispatches musical fireworks in the Red Violin Concerto, based on the Oscar-winning film score by John Corigliano. The intensity continues after intermission as Wagner and Tchaikovsky distill the passion of two of literature's most famous couples — Tristan and Isolde, and Romeo and Juliet — into some of the greatest music ever written.

BIO & VIDEO
PHILIPPE QUINT, VIOLIN
Award-winning American violinist Philippe Quint is a multifaceted artist whose wide range of interests has led to several Grammy nominations for his albums, performances with major orchestras throughout the world at venues ranging from the Gewandhaus in Leipzig to Carnegie Hall in New York, a leading role in a major independent film called Downtown Express, and explorations of tango with his band The Quint Quintet.
Highlights of his 2013/14 season include debut performances with the London Philharmonic, Vancouver Symphony, Kansas Symphony, Phoenix Symphony, Rochester Philharmonic, and the San Antonio Symphony as well as return engagements with the Rhode Island Philharmonic, Louisiana Philharmonic, Indianapolis Symphony, San Diego Symphony, and performances and a new recording of the Glazunov and Khachaturian Violin Concertos with the Bochumer Symphoniker and Steven Sloane.
Quint’s live performances and interviews have been broadcast on television by CBS, CNN, ABC, BBC World News, NBC, Reuters, Bloomberg TV, as well as by radio stations nationwide including NPR, WNYC and WQXR. His recordings have received multiple “Editor’s Choice” selections in Gramophone, The Strad, Strings, and the Daily Telegraph. His remarkable degree of lyricism, poetry and impeccable virtuosity has gripped the eyes and ears of audiences in Asia, Australia, Latin America, Africa, Europe and the U.S. with what The Times (London) describes as his “bravura technique, and unflagging energy.” www.philippequint.com
