Upcoming events

Chiara String Quartet: Like cellist Matt Haimovitz, this quartet will be coming to town, stopping at Ballard's Tractor Tavern on Wednesday.  Before the Tractor, they will be performing at the University of Washington as part of the International Chamber Music Series.  On the program: Bartok's second string quartet and Golijov's Yiddishbuk.

Yefim Bronfman: The pianist returns for a solo recital at Benaroya Hall.  Balakirev's Islamey as well as music by Schumann and Ravel's Gaspard de la nuit are on the program.  Composed in only a month, Balakirev was inspired to compose Islamey after a visit to the Caucuses. Incidentally, Ravel was trying to out due Balakirev when he wrote Gaspard de la nuit

Trio Mediaeval: This early music vocal ensemble will be performing French and English carols, Norwegian folk songs, and modern works built on ancient models.
