It's that time of the year again. Music@Menlo summer festival is on! It seems like I keep coming back for more, and no doubt I am very fond of their musical offering happening in peninsula. So let's pack out picnic basket, and have a leisurely dinner picnic before the concert, and enjoy the rest of the evening with beautiful music flawlessly played by their outstanding musicians. Please read below for concert details:The Solo Voice
The season comes to a riveting close as we celebrate the exuberance of Bach’s music for solo instruments and the virtuosity of the soloist. With its origins as an orchestral concerto, Bach’s Concerto for Violin and Oboe revels in the novelty of a double concerto, a masterly example of a virtuosic pairing of strings and wind instruments. Schubert’s Rondo in A Major equally captures the essence of the virtuosic violin with its rambunctious finale. Mozart wrote his Twelfth Piano Concerto shortly after the death of Bach’s son Carl Philipp Emanuel, a close friend and mentor. The program concludes with the Double Concerto for Violin, Piano, and String Quartet by Felix Mendelssohn, one of the most devoted heirs of Bach’s legacy, responsible for launching the modern Bach revival.PROGRAM
