West Coast Chamber Music opens their 27th season with Canadian composer Christine Donkin’s Piano Trio, an expressive work of sparkling clarity and romantic in spirit. Turning to the 19th Century, we’ll hear Edvard Grieg’s Violin and Piano Sonata in C minor, Op. 45, sweet, soulful and rich in Norwegian folk elements. Johannes Brahms’ epic Piano Quartet No.3 in C minor, Op.60 closes this concert, written on a grand scale and considered one of the greatest chamber works of the Romantic era.
Director/ Pianists Holly Duff and Alan Crane are joined by violinist Angela Cavadas, violist Tawnya Popoff and cellist Rebecca Wenham.
