Piedmont, CA: PCMF's Opening Night

  • Piedmont Center for the Arts 801 Magnolia Avenue Piedmont, CA, 94611 United States (map)

The opening concert of PCMF's 2017 season begins with Mozart's effervescent and joyful Flute and Harp Concerto — music for a celebration as only Mozart could have written. The Brahms Clarinet Sonata in E-flat turns inward to plumb emotional depths, from turbulent passion to soaring romanticism. The program ends with one of the Formosa Quartet's best-loved pieces, arranged by none other than first violinist Jasmine Lin. Her take on well-loved Grappelli jazz tunes brings quartet playing to an entirely raucous, riotous, and rousing level.
