Four Cellos: A Special Concert
Few will argue that the cello is a romantic, deeply emotive and beautiful instrument — and the woman who plays one is that and so much more. This coming weekend, my dear, longtime friend Joan Jeanrenaud (above, former 20-year veteran of the Kronos Quartet) is playing in a four-cello concert that I think is not to be missed. Yes, it’s in Alameda (which might as well be New Jersey to us San Franciscans), but the whole show looks to be *incredible*. Details are cut and pasted below.
This special concert features old and new music performed by celebrated cellists Joan Jeanrenaud, William Skeen, Joanna Blendulf and Theresa Wong. Works by composers Marin Marais, Thomas Lupot, Antonio Vivaldi, Georg Telemann, Philip Glass, Steven Mackey, Alex Kelly, Theresa Wong and Joan Jeanrenaud will be presented on the program. The pieces travel from the 1600’s to the present and use both the viol and the cello to present the wide range and development of the instrument as we know it today.
September, 14th & 15th 8pm; tickets are $20 in advance and $25 at the door.
