La Jolla Music Society SummerFest music director Cho-Liang “Jimmy” Lin vows to pull out all the stops in August when he concludes his final season as the heart and soul of the La Jolla Music Society’s acclaimed chamber-music celebration.

“I’m kind of ditching the musical parameters I usually have,” said Lin, who has expertly guided SummerFest as its music director for the past 18 years.

“I thought: ‘OK, I’ll just do whatever I want.’ And, hopefully, the audience will walk away happy. Even if they’re not happy, they’ll be rid of me!”

This was immediately followed by an even more arousing, glorious violin-piano duet, in which Barnatan was joined by the passionate, award-winning young violinist Benjamin Beilman for Schubert’s Fantasy in C Major.

But perhaps the evening’s highlight, after an intermission, was Schubert’s String Quintet in C Major, for which Barnatan brought together the world-class Dover Quartet, and joined them with Carter Brey, in from his day job as principal cellist of the New York Philharmonic…
