Noted pianist Gwendolyn Mok and clarinetist Larry London are joined by three members of the San Francisco Symphony for this exciting program from Berkeley Chamber Performances. This concert include brilliant works by Conradin Kreutzer and Ingolf Dahl, and culminates with Schubert's beloved Trout Quintet. A reception follows the evening's performance, allowing artists and audience to mingle and chat. The Berkeley City Club is a gorgeous location for chamber music with its blend of Romanesque and Moorish architectural styles from Julia Morgan, the same architect that designed the famous Hearst Castle on California's Central Coast.

Central Works always puts on unique plays. This one really did not thrill me. It was odd, choppy, and a bit hard to follow at times. I overheard people talking after that they really did not know what was going on. I did enjoy the actor who played multiple characters. I also thought it was clever how they integrated the video into the performance. It was done well and I am sure the timing was not easy for Jan.
