Ginormous warehouse groupmuse: World War II music
South of Market, San Francisco
Sun, October 13, 2019 7:00 PM, PDT
- 200 spots total at this groupmuse
- Bring your own drinks
- Kid-friendly event
Come step into our ginormous secret artspace in San Francisco and prepare yourself for a heartrending evening of World War II music.
- Copland: Sonata for Violin and Piano
- Shostakovich: E minor Trio for Violin, Cello, and Piano
As with most Soviet music written at about the same time, Shostakovich's E minor Piano Trio is certainly and inexorably concerned with the devastation of World War II. The piece can be heard as a memorial not just for a dear friend who died in a Nazi concentration camp, but for all those obliterated by the grinding machine of war. The Largo third movement, one of Stravinsky's most profoundly moving laments, was played at the composer's own funeral three decades later.
Please RSVP so we can calculate the correct carpet radius :-)
What do I bring?
A pillow, your loved ones, and the autumnal BYOB drink of your choice! Please bring at least $10 to pay the musicians at the event.
I've heard you're strict about start time -- tell me more?
Doors at 7pm, music at 7:45pm. ARRIVE ON TIME; out of respect for the musicians, the doors will be LOCKED during the music.

Hey everyone! Thanks for being a part of our intimate evening of chamber music at Monument. Special thanks to Daisy and to Shevek for all their help hosting, and everyone else who moved couches and help manage things.
I forgot to mention~ we keep a concert email list! Send me an email, and you will be added to our announcement list about ALL our upcoming shows.
I’m at [email protected].
Also- if you haven’t yet made a contribution to the musicians (or you want to contribute more!), you can do that on the Groupmuse website!

Thanks for attending everyone. Just a little correction and context for what I said on stage: the famous 8th String Quartet, which quotes the Trio we played, was written in just 3 days, 12-14 July 1960, while D.Sch was visiting bombed-out Dresden (not Sarajevo). He was supposed to be working on the film score to the movie “Five days, five nights,” but seems like both music history and his own creativity had other plans.
Hello Daisy . . . Ian and company really dug in tonight! What a wonderful space for performing and groupmuse offers exposure to classical music, especially for younger folks to hear great works. My programs are a mix of serious, humorous and light; art songs, musical theater, opera, etc. Ian played at for a couple of my gigs and I saw him in June which landed me my first groupmuse gig.
