Seattle Chamber Music Society summer festival starts tomorrow!

Tomorrow night the Seattle Chamber Music Society’s summer festival begins at the Lakeside School.  The Gathering Note will be there, covering each concert, tweeting (sign up to receive twitter updates if you haven’t already), and providing other content through the duration of the festival.  Tickets are still available and can be purchased by clicking the ad in the side bar.

The line up of pieces and musicians is always impressive, but some of my favorites this year include:

  • Ernest Bloch’s Piano Quintet Nr. 1 (July 10, 2009)
  • The world premiere of Christopher Theofanidis’s Duo for Violin and Cello played by James Ehnes and the Detroit Symphony’s Robert deMaine (July 13, 2009)
  • Paul Schoenfield’s Cafe Music (July 17, 2009)
  • Richard Strauss’s early Quartet for Piano and Strings (July 20, 2009)
  • Jeremy Denk playing Ligeti and Liszt in a FREE recital (July 22, 2009)

  • Darius Milhaud’s Suite for Violin, Clarinet and Piano from “Le voyaguers sans bagages” (July 24, 2009)
  • Jeremy Denk and Soovin Kim playing Charles Ives’s Sonata Nr. 3 for Violin and Piano in a FREE recital (July 29, 2009)
