Description

January’s program opens with the gently satirical and melancholy Flute Sonata of Francis Poulenc. Ravel’s Sonata for Violin and Cello follows, highlighting two of our guest musicians: violinist Chee Yun and cellist Alisa Weilerstein. Both musicians join the ensemble for the first time in January though their respective careers have included performances with orchestras and symphonys worldwide.

The program concludes with Louis Vierne’s Opus 42 Quintet for Piano & Strings. Vierne is primarily known as an organist and composer of works for that instrument, but the composition for string quintet that will be performed in January (by violinists Chee Yun and Agnes Gottwschewski, cellist Alisa Weilerstein, pianist Anne Epperson and violist Scott Lee) is a dark, quasi-autobiographical work, fully romantic in expression. It is the anchor of the program and a perfect example of a Camerata Pacifica trademark: the discovery and presentation of unknown music that should be known!
