1953 Hopkins St Berkeley

[01/02/19]   Born in Victorian England, violist and composer Rebecca Clarke not only has the distinction of being one of the first women in a professional orchestra, but also a woman composer from the early part of 20th century whose music has endured the test of time. Clarke has broken a few glass ceilings and paved the way for future women in music. We will explore Clarke’s viola sonata (1919) and piano trio (1921) on this program, written during the most prolific time of her illustrious career.

Wishing all of you a wonderful holiday season! Here's one of our performers from last season doing his thing

"Silent Night," the most poignant of Christmas carols, was composed by Franz Gruber in 1818, 200 years ago this month. I hope my version brightens your holidays just a little.

Our last concert of the season is coming up! Comprised of members of SF Opera and Ballet orchestras, the EOS Ensemble is one of the premier chamber ensembles of the bay area, bringing dramatic flair to the chamber music repertoire. EOS founder Craig Reiss will be joined by Amy Zanrosso in a performance of Beethoven's stormy and passionate violin sonata no.9 titled "Kreutzer" after the violin virtuoso of his time. Based on Tolstoy's novella "The Kreutzer Sonata", Czech composer Leos Janacek's first string quartet echoes the dramatic passion in Beethoven's violin sonata in a completely different musical language. A perfect way to spend your Mother's day afternoon!
