Concert At A Glance

  • The 12 Fellows of the 2022 Classical Tahoe Academy are featured in tonight’s chamber music performance.
  • Coleridge-Taylor’s Clarinet Quintet was one of the composer’s first steps into chamber music – written when he was just 20 years old and considered some of his finest writing.
  • Darius Milhaud’s deep love for jazz is reflected in his composition La Creation du Monde, and features the alto saxophone. One of Milhaud’s composition students was the now jazz legend, Dave Brubeck.
