PHOTOS: Copland in Colorado

The New York Philharmonic's 12th-annual summer residency at Bravo! Vail continued last night with a rousing all-American program. Bramwell Tovey led Copland's Clarinet Concerto with Associate Principal Clarinet Mark Nuccio in the spotlight — plus Gershwin favorites, Copland's Fanfare for the Common Man, and Grofé's Grand Canyon Suite.

The encore? Sousa's Stars and Stripes Forever, of course.

[Insert Bow Hair Joke]: Vail Twitpic Becomes WQXR Photo of the Day

Yesterday a twitpic (a photo posted on Twitter) by violinist Sharon Yamada of three Orchestra members horsing around on an off day in Vail has gone viral. It is everywhere.

Well, not by mass pop-culture standards. But the tweet was favorited and retweeted quite a bit, and WQXR made it their Photo of the Day.

"Spotted near Vail, Colorado: New York Philharmonic violists Rebecca Young and Rémi Pelletier and violinist Sarah Pratt rehearse on horseback," the WQXR story began. It closed with an interesting riff on "another famous fiddler with a love of horses: Eugene Fodor Jr., the flamboyant virtuoso who was dubbed the 'cowboy violinist" during the 1970s and '80s.'" Follow the link for the whole story.

PHOTOS: Weekend Concerts at Bravo! Vail

Over the weekend, Alan Gilbert and the Orchestra gave three concerts in scenic Vail, Colorado, for the first half of the Philharmonic's 12th-annual summer residency at Bravo! Vail. Joined by soloists Yefim Bronfman and Principal Oboe Liang Wang, the Orchestra performed music from Beethoven to Liszt, from Strauss to Rouse, and dedicated opening night to the memory of former Music Director Lorin Maazel.

PHOTOS: The Return to Vail

The Philharmonic has traded New York for cooler climes: the Bravo! Vail festival in the heart of Colorado's Rocky Mountains. The Orchestra has already performed three concerts there, and made time for workshops with Very Young Composers of Vail. Check out photos from the residency thus far.
