During his 14th season as music director of SummerFest, Cho-Liang “Jimmy” Lin has had a singular mission: “The goal of every summer remains largely unchanged since Day One,” said Lin in an email. “I want to bring to the audience great and worthy works played by great musicians.”
The just-announced 2014 season should succeed on both counts. The repertoire is wide ranging, from Haydn (this year’s featured composer) to world premieres by Howard Shore and Sérgio Assad.
It will comprise 15 concerts, including performances at the Museum of Contemporary Art San Diego, St. James by-the-Sea and the Auditorium at TSRI. It will introduce audiences to two accomplished “fellowship artist” ensembles, the Pegasus Trio and the Omer Quartet, in addition to appearances by musicians of the stature of pianist Yefim Bronfman and cellist Lynn Harrell.
