SCCMS Concert February 13

Feb 9, 2021

The South Coast Chamber Music Series presents “From Russia with Love,” virtually. What better way to celebrate winter than a troika of Russian beauties? Shostakovich hits a playfully tart bull’s-eye with his first String Quartet (1938), composed after the huge success of his Fifth Symphony reinstated the composer in official favor. Rachmaninoff’s beloved Vocalise, arranged for viola and piano, weaves its melancholy magic, after which the C Minor Piano Trio by Rimsky-Korsakov brings our Russian ride to a fittingly colorful end. 

The musicians performing in this concert are principal chairs of the NBSO Jesse Holstein (violin), EmmaLee Holmes-Hicks (violin), Anna Griffis (viola), Leo Eguchi (cello), and SCCMS Artistic Director Janice Weber (piano).
