Hi All!

We are thrilled to announce that Grisha has briefly made his way back to California, and will be gracing us with a performance at our home! Grisha is so talented and we always love to have him play our seldom used piano. He has reached out with a proposed program, though it is subject to change.

Brahms, Rhapsody, Op. 79 no. 2
Mozart, Sonata K575
Schubert, Sonata D784
Brahms, Intermezzo, Op. 118 nos. 1-2

We'll have refreshments and conversation before and after the program. Doors are at 6.30, with the show starting around 7p. Parking on the block is plentiful, but if you need special accommodations for parking or ingress, please let me know in advance.

Well behaved children over the age of 8 are welcome, but the very little folks should probably stay home. If you have any questions, feel free to reach out!

We had a cat, so if you are severely allergic, there is probably still some lingering hair on the furniture.

As it's just a part of life at this point, please be vaccinated for COVID. We'll be indoors and it's much appreciated!

Can't wait to welcome you all (and Grisha) into our home!

What's the music?

Prelude from English Suite no. 2 (Bach)

Rhapsody, Op. 79 no. 2 (Brahms) -- In this rich and lugubrious work, Brahms explores the extended harmonies of his late-Romantic contemporaries within the architecture of Classical forms.

Sonata, D784 (Schubert) -- Schubert's darkest Sonata, culminating in a thrilling and virtuosic third movement.

Intermezzi, Op. 118, nos. 1-2 (Brahms) -- Two gems from Brahms' penultimate opus. The first is intense and passionate, and the second is sweet and lyrical. This is the mature work of a master composer.

Where does this music come from?

Brahms is well-known for having revered Beethoven and Bach. In letters to his contemporaries, Brahms also expressed a deep admiration for Schubert.
