Music at Kohl Mansion: Alexander String Quartet with Joyce Yang, piano

One of the best chamber music experience in the Bay Area, it's Music at Kohl!

Described as “the most gifted young pianist of her generation” with a “million-volt stage presence” pianist Joyce Yang has established herself as one of the leading artists of today. A 2005 Van Cliburn International Competition Silver Medalist, she is the 2010 recipient of an Avery Fisher Career Grant, one of classical music’s most prestigious accolades. She joins the Alexander String Quartet in her Kohl debut, to offer a sneak preview of their joint CD to be released later this fall.

Honorary Chairs of last year’s MAKM 30th Anniversary Season, the Alexander String Quartet has performed in the major music capitals of five continents, securing its standing among the world’s premier ensembles. A major artistic presence in its home base of San Francisco, the quartet’s members serve as directors of the Morrison Chamber Music Center at San Francisco State University and Ensemble in Residence of San Francisco Performances.

And... Free food and drinks (wine) after the concert!

    Thank you all! I've got photos, can I put them in the photo section? I think you can download them from there. Sent Kalpa and Donaji emails through meetup mail but it doesn't allow attachments.
    BTW, Schumann, it turns out might have used a finger exercising device but didn't injure himself or end his piano-playing career that way. (I was yammering about this before the concert)
    Great concert! Great company!

    It was great to met you!, at dinner I mentioned one modern compositor that was very interesting to hear, with glass of water an a lot of tools to play it properly the name of the piece: black angels for electric string quartet, his name George Crumb. Hope to see you soon

    Waiting for a call back if there is a ticket left. If I don't show it's because it's sold out.

    Hi All,
    For those coming to dinner, I have a total of 4, I changed the time to 4 PM. Was reminded that it'll take a little time to drive to the venue and we were a little late for the pre-concert talk last time.

    To find me, I'll be wearing a pink scarf.

    Updated with dinner info. Thanks for the recommendation; thought it was just a bakery store (and I do love bakery).
