Come enjoy a musical afternoon in sunny Palo Alto. While many musical organizations close the doors for vacation in August, Ram and Denise kindly open their beautiful house and terrace for SALON CLASSIQUE. Sit inside close to the musicians, or on the deck by the pool and listen to great masterworks for piano trio. Wine and refreshments will be served as well as hors d'ouevres during the intermission.

About the program:

Schubert's Piano Trio in B flat is a jewel of the genre. The composer performed it himself in a private salon among his friends in Vienna, where he premiered most of his chamber music. A few decades earlier Beethoven had written his virtuosic Variations for Cello and Piano. They are based on a theme from Mozart's opera The Magic Flute that everybody was whistling in the streets at that time. Our final piece is the Second Piano Trio by great romantic Spanish composer Joaquin Turina. He had acquired his skills in bustling Paris of the early 20th century and became a master in combining French impressionist refinement with the passion of Spanish folklore.


About the musicians:

Angela Lee, cellist of The Lee Trio, and Karsten Windt, founding director of SALON CLASSIQUE and former 1st. violinist of the Deutsche Symphony Berlin, belong to the core of the SALON CLASSIQUE musicians. This time they are joined by pianist Avi Downes, whom we welcome back on the podium after the birth of her second child. After studying in San Francisco, Vienna and Cologne, Avi has been playing chamber music throughout her career and received numerous awards in international competitions.


About the series:

SALON CLASSIQUE, an affiliate of San Francisco Friends of Chamber Music, is a concert series that brings masterworks of chamber music from the concert hall back to its original setting: the intimate environment of a private venue. We provide informative introductions to the music as part of the program.

About the hosts:

When inviting their friends for the legendary annual spring party, Ram and Denise do not only offer delicious food, but also have some friends performing live music for their guests. The audience can sit around the musicians from many different sides, with the doors open to the deck and garden, which makes their home the perfect venue for a chamber music concert in the summer. Thank you for hosting this SALON CLASSIQUE concert, Ram and Denise.
