Sounds of the valley

Performances are from the 2015 and 2016 seasons and include Beethoven’s First Violin Sonata (Shai Wosner, Jennifer Koh), Barber’s Adagio for Strings (Takács Quartet), Brahms’ Concerto for Violin and Cello in A minor (Aspen Festival Orchestra, Tomáš Netopil, Noah Bendix-Balgley and Alisa Weilerstein), Ravel’s Daphnis et Chloé Suite (Aspen Conducting Academy Orchestra, David Coucheron), among others. The stream, which launched this week, is available at yourclassical.org/listen/aspen and will remain live through Dec. 15. AMFS’ summer season kicks off June 29.

It’s taco time
Did you know Slope & Hatch offers some of the nation’s top-ranked tacos? That’s according to Yelp users, as Business Insider reported in a May story. The Glenwood Springs restaurant ranked ninth in a roundup of the top 50 taco restaurants. Taste ‘em for yourself at 208 Seventh St.
