CalArts professor of violin, viola and chamber music Mark Menzies designed the Fall Salon and will perform throughout the series. Menzies planned the salon to introduce audiences to the classical side of CalArts.
``This little collection of concerts illustrates that although CalArts' School of Music is renowned for its avant-garde explorations, its instrumental faculty is also versed in traditional forms,'' Menzies said. ``Playing contemporary avant-garde music is a little like building an attic. You have to build the house first, and that house includes the classics.''
For the series, Menzies mixes favorites with little known discoveries. The first evening will feature the music of Mozart. Later highlights include Robert Schumann's ``Fairy Tales This is a list of fairy tales, the dates of their earliest known printed version, the author and, if known, the collection of tales in which it was published. It should be noted, however, that not all stories listed below would be categorized as fairy tales by a strict definition ,'' two of Johann Sebastian Bach's Brandenburg Concertos The Brandenburg concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach (BWV 1046–1051, original title: Six Concerts Avec plusieurs Instruments) are a collection of six instrumental works presented by Bach to Christian Ludwig, margrave of Brandenburg-Schwedt , virtuosic compositions by Franz Schubert Many of Franz Schubert's works are covered in separate Wikipedia articles, for which there are links on this page.
