Eos Ensemble: Pastorale in the Redwoods
Online ticket sales for this event have closed; a limited number of tickets will be available at the gate.
What better way to spend a summer afternoon than in our Redwood Amphitheater with chamber music from returning favorite Eos Ensemble? Enjoy a glass of wine (or sparkling water) and a program that will soothe and delight:
Claude Debussy, Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp
Jean Francaix, Quintet for Flute, Harp and String Trio
Beethoven, String trio op. 9 no. 1
The Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp by Claude Debussy is one of the only works with this unique instrumentation and is full of evocative dreaminess and fiery virtuosity. Jean Françaix’s quintet adds a string trio to the flute/harp duo and while influenced by Ravel has its own playfulness and meditative qualities. Beethoven’s String Trio op. 9 no.1 is a tour de force and a brilliant foreshadowing of the great masterworks to come from this musical giant.

Caroline Lee, viola

The Eos Ensemble, founded by violinist Craig Reiss, is an exciting chamber music group comprised mainly of members of the San Francisco Opera orchestra. The goal of the group is to present concerts of wide ranging musical styles and instrumental combinations. We offer the opportunity to hear these talented musicians rise from the pit to the stage, playing everything from Beethoven to Ligeti. Audiences throughout the Bay Area have been thrilled to experience the artistry normally reserved for the grand canvas of opera transformed to the intimacy of chamber music. The Eos Ensemble has received grants from Music Performance Trust Fund and KIDDO! to present educational concerts in the Mill Valley schools. They also recently performed on the national radio broadcast “West Coast Live.” San Francisco Classical Voice said, “Every little detail was perfectly in place and meticulously balanced… They played with genuine depth and power.”
