wintermezzo weekend I, November 6- 8, 2009

wintermezzo weekend II, January 22-24, 2010

W.A. Mozart – Piano and Violin Sonata in C, K. 6, op. 1 Ludwig van Beethoven - Piano Trio in E-flat, op. 1/1 Ernst von Dohnányi - Piano Quintet in c, op. 1

Anton Bruckner - Adagio from the String Quintet in F, WAB 112 John Harbison - Snow Country for Oboe and String Quartet (1979) Franz Schubert – String Quintet in C, D. 956

Each work is an Opus One or first work of these composers, foreshadowing great genius to come. Mozart’s delightful Violin Sonata, composed when he was eight, is paired with Beethoven’s first attempt at chamber music, 30 years later. Hungarian composer Dohnányi wrote this lushly romantic quintet at the age of 18 and the influence of Brahms on the young composer is immediately apparent.

Scott Yoo, violin; Jason Uyeyama, violin; Edwin Kaplan, viola; Andrew Smith, cello; Noam Elkies, piano Friday, November 6, 2009, 5:30-6:30 PM Notable Encounter INSIGHTS: Fingerprints of Genius Grace Church, San Luis Obispo A one–hour presentation with the musicians’ commentary exploring how the first two chamber music works of Beethoven and Mozart signaled great things to come. Saturday, November 7, 2009, 6 PM* Notable Encounter DINNER Home of Sharon Harris Schneider & Dennis Schneider Varian Ranch, Arroyo Grande Take in the stunning views offered by this spectacular home in an intimate evening of food, wine and music. Enjoy pre-dinner wine and hors d’ oeuvres on the covered patio, and then head inside with the musicians and other guests for a buffet accompanied by fine wine. Sit back as the musicians take us inside the music, illuminating these three featured works. *Parking is at the Varian Ranch entrance. Trolley service to the home begins at 5:30 PM.

Sunday, November 8, 2009, 3 PM Sunday CONCERT: Opus One United Methodist Church, San Luis Obispo Hear all three featured works in full at this beautiful mountain-top location.

American composer John Harbison wrote the spare, beautiful Snow Country during an unusually dark Wisconsin winter. The work’s starkly tonal landscape recalls the sense of finality of a never-ending winter. Symphonic in scale and intimate in character, the Adagio from Bruckner’s first and only chamber work expresses an almost unbearable bliss. One critic wrote, “If the only thing Bruckner had ever written had been this magnificent slow movement, his reputation would have been secured for all eternity.” The composer Benjamin Britten once said that “the richest 18 months in music history” were “the period in which Franz Schubert wrote...the C Major String Quintet.” This pinnacle in the chamber music repertoire is a tantalizing monument to what might have been had Schubert’s life not been so tragically short.

Anne-Marie Gabriele, oboe; Scott Yoo, violin; Caroline Campbell, violin; Erik Rynearson, viola; Paul Severtson, viola; Susie Yang, cello; Andrew Smith, cello Friday, January 22, 2010, 5:30–6:30 PM Notable Encounter INSIGHTS: Isn’t It Romantic? Or Is It? Grace Church, San Luis Obispo What do we mean when we say music is ‘Romantic’? And when and where did it start crossing the ‘Classical” line? Join the musicians for a one-hour lively presentation. Saturday, January 23, 2010, 6 PM Notable Encounter DINNER END of the LINE Café, San Luis Obispo Enjoy an intimate evening of food, wine and music.
