KHACHATURIAN: Violin Concerto
RAVEL: Alborada del gracioso
RAVEL: Rapsodie espagnole
RAVEL: La valse

Diana Adamyan is quickly gaining an international reputation as one of her generation's most outstanding violinists. Born in Armenia, she won First Prize at the 2018 Yehudi Menuhin International Competition and First Prize in the 2020 Khachaturian Violin Competition. In her Aspen debut, she takes on the Khachaturian Violin Concerto. 

Also on the program are three of Ravel’s most colorfully orchestrated and rhythmically dynamic showpieces. Alborada del gracioso and Rapsodie espagnole display Ravel’s uncanny ability to create seemingly authentic Spanish music in works of exquisite sensuality and vitality. La Valse is the composer’s darkly surrealistic deconstruction of the waltz, a sometimes ferocious take on the elegant Viennese dance form. Discover a rising violin star and revel in the ravishing soundscape of Ravel with this invigorating concert!


Performances will have a 20-minute intermission.

This event will also be livestreamed for free. For a full list of livestreams, click here.
