Club Shostakovich X – in Honor of Holocaust Remembrance Day

CS 10 poster screenshot REDUXWe are honored to be hosted by Temple Beth Am to share music by composers whose lives were deeply impacted by the Holocaust. Shostakovich’s Tenth Quartet (1964) bears a dedication to Mieczyslaw Weinberg, the Jewish/Polish composer who fled to the Soviet Union after his family members were murdered in the camps. We’ll play the Lento from Weinberg’s Fourth Quartet (1945), as well as Gideon Klein’s String Trio from 1944 and Alexander von Zemlinsky’s A Major Quartet from 1896. Blayne Barnes, Natasha Bazhanov and Artur Girsky, violinists extraordinaires, join us.

Island Rescue

On February 28, Trio Pardalote will perform an “Island Rescue” for the Second City Chamber Series in Tacoma. Instead of coming from the island of Manhattan (as was originally scheduled), we will bring our program from the island of Vashon. We play Beethoven, Horvitz and Shostakovich this Sunday on Vashon, and then on Friday cross the water to play Beethoven, Campo and Cras in Tacoma. Here’s the link to the Second City website:
