Dreams of Power and Decadence by the Fort Collins Symphony

8 p.m.

Lincoln Center

Samuel Barber’s Toccata Festiva reveals the depth of color the organ and symphony together can produce. A contrasting set of hues can be found in French composer Francois Foulenc’s Concerto. This work has big splashes of color, some as light as French champagne, some as ominous as watching Germany during World War II. Saint-Saens was at the height of his powers and the toast of France in the 19th century. The third premiered in London in 1886 and is dedicated to Franz Liszt, who had played the work on the piano. Tickets are $25 to $35.
