CHAMBER MUSIC PALISADES

Grammy Award-Winning Violinist Sara Parkins at St. Matthew's Parish 3.29.11
Chamber Music Palisades creates a music bridge between Asia and Europe with a concert showcasing three compelling works, including the rhythmic and virtuosic chamber piece Suite for Flute and Cello by contemporary Japanese composer Yuko Uebayashi, Tuesday, March 29, 2011, 8 P.M., at St. Matthews Parish in Pacific Palisades.

Haydn’s compelling Trio in C for Violin, Cello and Piano, HOB xv:27, and Brahms’ thought-provoking Trio for Clarinet, Cello and Piano in A Minor, Op. 114, round out the program, which features leading Grammy Award-winning violinist Sara Parkins, John Walz, cello, and Donald Foster, clarinet, with series Co-Founders/Co-Artistic Directors Susan Greenberg, flute, and Delores Stevens, piano.

The music of Uebayashi, who was born in Kyoto, Japan, in 1975 and has lived in Paris since 1998, has been described as “lyrical†and “surprising.†She earned a degree in composition from Kyoto Shiritsu Geijutsu Daigaku, the City University of Arts. Influenced by the music of her native Japan, she also draws inspiration from many other musical genres.

Brahms’ Trio for Clarinet, Cello and Piano in A Minor, Op. 114, written in 1891 in four movements, is noted for its polished craftsmanship, Romantic warmth and decisively virtuosic finish with the essence of Austria woven into the third movement with a Viennese waltz and Austrian Ländler, the waltz’s forerunner, replete with yodeling clarinet.

Chamber Music Palisades – described as “a unique and extraordinary organization†that provides “a transcendent musical experience†– was founded in 1997 by Pacific Palisades residents Stevens and Greenberg, who draw guest artists from their vast pool of talented colleagues in the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra, and Los Angeles Opera, and from other leading instrumentalists based in the U.S. and Europe.

In addition to presenting established chamber works, to date Chamber Music Palisades has commissioned 13 compositions by such renowned composers as Paul Chihara, Jane Brockman, Henri Lazarof, Adrienne Albert, Maria Newman, Gernot Wolfgang and Joel McNeely. The season continues with concerts on March 29, 2011, and May 3, 2011.

Tickets to the concert are $30. St. Matthew’s Parish is located at 1031 Bienveneda in Pacific Palisades, CA 90272. For tickets or a free season brochure, please call 310-463-4388 or visit www.cmpalisades.org.
