Santa Cruz Chamber Players 5/1
May 1 @ 3:00 pm
Santa Cruz Chamber Players presents “Hidden Gems, Arrangements, and New Commissions” at Christ Lutheran Church. Music by Mozart, von Weber, Spohr, Glazunov, Golijov, de Falla, Tchaikovsky, and Chad Cannon played by FARALLON QUINTET: Matthew Oshida, Concert Director and Violin; Jose Gonzalez Granero, Clarinet; Ani Bukujian, Violin; Elizabeth Prior, Viola and Evan Kahn, Cello.
The clarinet quintet genre—string quartet plus clarinet—was first created by Mozart when he wrote the beloved Quintet in A Major in 1789. Since then many composers followed suit: there are more than 600 clarinet quintets that are mostly unknown to audiences.
Farallon Quintet was formed in 2012 with a mission to introduce audiences to the rich, yet relatively unfamiliar, clarinet quintet repertoire with hidden gems, new composer commissions, and innovative arrangements.
