Bela Fleck's got a thing for Mozart / Colorado Public Radio

Bookmark and Share

When Grammy-Award-winning banjo player Béla Fleck made plans to play with the Colorado Symphony at the 41st annual Telluride Bluegrass Festival this summer, he had a special request.

Fleck insisted that, as part of the concert's programming, the orchestra play Mozart's "Jupiter Symphony," the final -- and longest -- symphony written by the composer. 

"It's one of my favorite pieces ever and I've had a number of incredible experiences listening to it," Fleck says. Listen to the Colorado Public Radio interview and see Bela Fleck perform with the Colorado Symphony June 20th.
