5/5/2022 - BRAHMS-ERA TRIOS HIGHLIGHT OAKMONT CHAMBER CONCERT - Nicholas Xelenis
Music at Oakmont / Israeli Chamber Project. Tibi Cziger, clarinet; Michal Korman, cello; Assaff Weisman, piano
The Music at Oakmont concert May 5 in Berger Auditorium was attended with mostly masked patrons who were buzzing at the door and then made an effort to get close to the stage to hear the piano trio from the Israeli Chamber Music Project. Berger’s sonics were a bit of a challenge for the musicians w...

4/2/2022 - DISPARATE TRIOS IN HOLLYWOOD PIANO TRIO'S 222 CONCERT - Terry McNeill
The 222 / Hollywood Piano Trio. Inna Faliks, piano; Eric Byers, cello; Roberto Cani, violin
It’s often said that opposites attract, and the two piano trios performed April 2 did attract a full house at Healdsburg’s 222 Concert Series. And yes the Schumann D Minor (Op.63) and the Shostakovich E Minor (Op. 67), composed nearly a century apart, are pretty much antipodal. Played by the Holly...

Quartet San Francisco / Jeremy Cohen and Joseph Christianson, violin; Chad Kaltinger, viola; Andrés Vera, cello
Quartet San Francisco, the eclectic and adventuresome Bay Area chamber ensemble, knocked the socks off its March 27 Mill Valley Chamber Music Society audience with their program of Latin and Tango music. From the heated opening bars of Astor Piazzolla’s Libertango through Chick Corea’s ebullient S...
3/11/2022 - STERLING PELED-POLERA SHOSTAKOVICH IN REDWOOD ARTS RECITAL - Terry McNeill
Redwood Arts Council / Amit Peled, cello; Noreen Polera, piano
Following an Omicron hiatus, live music returned March 11 when the Redwood Arts Council in its 42nd season presented Amit Peled’s cello recital in Occidental’s Performing Arts Center. Mr. Peled’s artistry has been heard often at the RAC, and uniquely the same program was performed at 2 and 7 p.m. ...
2/27/2022 - DYNAMIC TRIOS AT HORSZOWSKI MILL VALLEY CONCERT - Abby Wasserman
Horzowski Trio / Jesse Mills, violin; Ole Akahoshi, cello; Rieko Aizawa, piano
The Horszowski Trio brought the Mill Valley Chamber Music Society’s near-capacity audience to its feet Feb. 27 with sensitive and beautifully balanced ensemble playing. The music performed, piano trios by Smetana, Rebecca Clarke, and Arno Babadjanian, span 100 years and three cultures. The governing...
