    Nordstrom. lol. I would like to attend this plus the James Ehnes concert. I play violin, viola, and piano, and Barbara Rader... yes, I love playing chamber music. I don't own any but we can get it at a Library with some notice, or print out some. I know a flutist. As you may know there are many community orchestras in Seattle, too, if you like the larger groups. If you know of any particular chamber work with Oboe and strings, let me know.. i'm game! Oh, now I see Raymond. Hi Raymond!

    I am interested in starting a regular meeting of musicians who would like to play classical music in small groups. I play the oboe and would enjoy playing with other people. Please send me an email if you are interested: [masked]

    Great meeting the folks whom I sat with -- sorry that I missed any others. The folks I met were all nice, enthused about the music, and I am eager to attend more concerts with them! The seats were really good -- from memory, I think about 6 rows from the stage and about 10 seats from center, on the 'cello side'.

    The concert: even though the program included music only from central Europe, it was an exciting program, full of contrasts in mood, texture, form, and color. I thought the free pre-concert Brahms Quartet was played with little character and I started to worry the rest of the evening would be a 'yawner' -- good thing it was not. The Mahler & Strauss pieces for piano quartet and the Bartok and Suk pieces for string quartet (the same group that had played the Brahms earlier) was an imaginative program all played with great verve -- not a yawn to be heard here! For my tastes the early Beethoven trio that ended the evening was a let-down. Overall, though, a great night!

    The program was both outstanding and diverse just like our group. Brian secured us top notch seats in the front section. Superb!

    Very nice concert. The few people who did attend were very friendly and really enjoyed talking classical music.

    I've created a Spotify playlist with the program's selections if you are interested in 'previewing'. The Mahler, Strauss, & Suk are unfamiliar, so for those I chose what seems most promising from what's available. The Hollywood Qt is a consistent favorite. I really like this Tokyo Qt Bartok #4 recording, as well as Stern/Rose/Istomin for the Beethoven. More favorites of the Bartok and an alternative, good 'HIP' version of the Beethoven are included.

    OK -- there is now a pre-concert happy hour/dinner meetup for Lecosho at -- hope you can come!

    For an early dinner before the 6:30pm recital, let's go to Lecosho, which is about a block and a half down University Street from Benaroya Hall, down the Harbor Steps near Post Alley. I've never been there, but it looks like they have a good happy hour menu ( Let's aim for no later than 5pm -- I'll add a meetup for 4:45pm. Let me know if you plan to come so I can check on a reservation, if necessary.
