The 40th Annual Colorado Music Festival continues this weekend with a series of performances celebrating the work of French composers. Beginning with world-renown pianist Benedetto Lupo peforming works by Maurice Ravel and Claude Debussy on Thursday, July 20, the French Mini-Festival continues on July 21 with an encore performance from Lupo on the early evening "Fresh Fridays" series. On Saturday, July 22, Lupo joins memeber of the CMF chamber orchestra and caps off an all Debussy program with a rousing performance of Gabriel Fauré's Piano Conerto No. 1 in C Minor, Op. 15 before concluding the following evening with Fauré's French Soirée which also includes works by Paul Dukas, Camille Saint-Saëns, Jaques Offenbach and Cécile Chaminade. We can think of no finer guide to the splendors of French music than Lupo, a Van Cliburn competition medalist and no finer time to see him tickling the ivories than this weekend at Boulder's Chautauqua Auditorium (900 Baseline Rd.). Visit to learn more and buy tickets to one, or even all four of the concerts, $9-$54 each.
