🤗 Welcome back to another Groupmuse at the Century Club of California!

💃 This historic women's club dates from the late 1800s, and has a rich history as a part of San Francisco's cultural life.

🎻 Our programs feature a variety of performers, musical styles, and instruments, and the elegant Julia-Morgan ballroom is a welcoming place for all.

🎶 This program will feature the Vinifera Trio—clarinetist Matthew Boyles, violinist Rachel Patrick, and pianist Ian Scarfe. This group was founded in the wine-country hills of Napa, and performs both classical works and their own arrangements.

🥂 The members of the Century Club of California are sponsoring and hosting this Groupmuse, and will provide drinks for all who attend!

What's the music?

Rachel Patrick Violin, Viola
Matthew Boyles

W. A. Mozart - "Kegelstatt" Trio in E-flat
Jennifer Hidden - DASH
Bela Bartok - Contrasts
George Gershwin - An American in Paris

Where does this music come from?

Mozart's "Kegelstatt" Trio is one of the first chamber music works ever written for the clarinet, and its historical significance is matched by Mozart's infectious wit and lyricism. Jennifer Higdon's work DASH was originally conceived for a saxophone, but our performer Matthew Boyles knows how to adapt such things to his clarinet. Bela Bartok's flashy and swaggering "Contrasts" was originally written for big-band clarinetist Benny Goodman. George Gershwin was one of the early Americans to bring together the worlds of jazz and popular American music with the classical concert stage. His "An American in Paris" is originally a work for full symphony orchestra, here arranged for trio by Matthew Boyles.
