Music of our Time
La Jolla Music Society continues its impressive history of commissioning new chamber music repertoire with three special premières. Tonight’s program, showcasing the work of our three festival Composers-in-Residence and a fourth prolific composer, will beguile, entertain and expand your musical horizons.
Daughter of SummerFest artist Sergio Assad, Clarice Assad’s Synchonous receives its world première tonight. It was written for and will be played by New York Philharmonic’s Principal Oboe and returning SummerFest artist, Liang Wang.
Ning is a gripping and dramatic musical narration by eminent Chinese composer Chen Yi played on the Chinese lute pipa, violin and cello.
Award-winning American composer Derek Bermel’s attractive and contemplative piano trio Death with Interruptions makes its California première, as does Peter Schickele’s Clarinet Quintet, Spring Ahead. Possibly better known as his alter-ego P.D.Q. Bach, Peter Schickele is a leading composer of contemporary classical music in his own right.
Prior to the performance please join us for dinner at Roppongi.
