The Red Violin

When: Sat., Sept. 20, 8 p.m. and Sun., Sept. 21, 2:30 p.m. 2014

Joshua Bell's Feb. 26 appearance serves as the biggest event in the Colorado Springs Philharmonic's 2014-15 season. And this weekend, the Philharm will kick off said season with a nod to Bell. 1998 film The Red Violin featured the young virtuoso's playing — apparently, he would literally hide behind the actors and go to work, letting them fake it for the camera. Five years later, composer John Corigliano completed a full concerto built on what he penned for the film, and you can hear it at 8 tonight and 2:30 tomorrow at the Pikes Peak Center (190 S. Cascade Ave., csphilharmonic.org). Tickets run $21 to $63. — Kirk Woundy
