About the Event
The crown jewel of this WolganG program is the monumental Divertimento in E flat major, K. 563, by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart for string trio, one of his noblest works. Mozart himself played his favored instrument, the viola in the premier of this work in Dresden in 1789! This work provided inspiration to Beethoven and Schubert and countless others. To open this program we present The Three Madrigals for violin and viola by Bohuslav Martinu, inspired by a performance of Mozart Duos by Lillian and Joseph Fuchs, As Robert Matthew-Walker writes, "Here, surely, is a memoir of his roots: Bohemian-Moravian folk themes and dances, the pentatonic scale, the very instrumentation of his beloved violin and viola, the ‘sprung’ rhythms of the madrigalists which had so enchanted Martinu when he first heard The English Singers in 1923, intimate sketches of his homeland momentarily at peace and recollected from a distant convalescence."
We are thrilled to present violinist, Jessica Fellows. Jessie is currently the Assistant Principal Second Violin with the San Francisco Symphony. Prior to her appointment, she performed frequently with both the Saint Louis Symphony and the New York Philharmonic. Ms. Fellows’s recent summer festival appearances include engagements at Bravo! Vail, Lakes Area Music Festival, Rome Chamber Music Festival, Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival, Spoleto USA, and the Aspen Music Festival, where she was a fellow from 2011–16. Returning to SandBox to join the WolfganG is the assistant principal violist of the San Francisco Symphony, Katie Kadarauch. Musikiwest's founder/artistic director and creator of SandBox, Michelle Djokic is the cellist.
