CHAMBER MUSIC SERIES BEGINS AT CALARTS.Byline: Daily News
VALENCIA - California Institute of the Arts' School of Music will present five evenings of chamber music this month and next featuring baroque, romantic and lyric compositions.
Internationally renowned musicians from the CalArts faculty and invited guests will perform in the series, with a reception following each concert featuring refreshments chosen to enhance the theme of the evening.
Mark Menzies, CalArts professor of violin, viola and chamber music, designed the fall concert series 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.
For the series, Menzies mixes favorites with little-known discoveries. The first evening features the music of Mozart, and later concerts highlight 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 ``Brandenberg Concertos,'' compositions by Franz Schubert Many of Franz Schubert's works are covered in separate Wikipedia articles, for which there are links on this page.
A complete list of Schubert's works arranged by "D number" (see below), is available in the following two articles:
