Although a flute, harp and viola combination may seem odd at first, no other trio proves as enchanting or evocative -- a discovery made by Claude Debussy who wrote one of his best pieces for just such a grouping. Combining the dreaminess of the harp with the emotional precision of the viola and the high notes of the flute, the Myriad Trio has a range of feeling few other ensembles of any size can match. Formed by principal players of the San Diego and Dallas Symphonies, the trio plays traditional pieces as well as world premieres they commission themselves, such as David Bruce's The Eye of Night. During their concert at the Irvine Barclay Theatre, they will play Bruce's piece in addition to stirring works by Respighi, Natra, Bach and Debussy. Learn More

You can be sure of an evening of high-style, droll wit, and fabulous music when Max Raabe and his big band return to the Barclay. This urbane group from Berlin is renowned for recreating the musical glory of the Weimar-era, pop songs of the '20s and '30s, and exquisitely crafted modern love songs. Songs you’ve heard many times, and songs you will want to hear again and again. Max’s winsome demeanor and playful banter have charmed audiences from Carnegie Hall to L.A. He sings with his tongue firmly in-cheek ... but in high musical style.
