Music Society plans for 30th chamber classics festival
“La Jolla Music Society’s (LJMS) SummerFest turns 30 this year and is celebrating its pearl anniversary. Fittingly, the lineup of musicians performing Aug. 3-26 is studded with gems.
Among the glitterati is violin virtuoso Pinchas Zukerman, whose Zukerman Trio also featuring cellist Amanda Forsyth and pianist Angela Cheng will perform (Aug. 9) selections by Brahms, Dvorak, Gliere and Mendelssohn. Other luminaries include Latvian-born Mischa Maisky, making his SummerFest debut over two nights (Aug. 19-20) and performing all six of Bach’s cello suites, and Canadian pianist Marc-Andre Hamelin, who’s also appearing at the seaside festival for the first time, on Aug. 24.”
