March 31, 2007: Denise Djokic and David Jalbert
|Young Canadian cellist Denise Djokic is already one of North America’s most sought-after soloists. "... considered by many to be the best up-and-coming cello player in the world." (Salina Journal). She is partnered with pianist David Jalbert, who played for us in 2003. The duo's recording "Folklore," on Sony Classics, received an East Coast Music Award. They will perform works by J. S. Bach, Debussy, Schumann, and Chopin. For more information, please see our printable PDF flyer.|
"Jalbert's piano playing is remarkable for its sweep, confidence, sensitivity, power and color." (Fanfare)
|Las Positas College will hold a discussion on Ms. Djokic and Mr. Jalbert Thursday 29 Mar 2007. The discussion is not the same as the concert, and is sold separately by LPC.|
May 5, 2007: Chu-Fang Huang
|At age 23, this exceptional pianist from China won the 2005 Cleveland International Piano Competition, and was a finalist in the Van Cliburn competition the same year. We are proud to bring her to Livermore for her Bay Area debut.|
"Ms. Huang’s pianistic ability to quickly soar from delicate and sensitive phrases to bold and expressive ones – never wavering and always under complete control – is quite remarkable." (The Islander).
|Las Positas College will hold a discussion on Ms. Huang Thursday 3 May 2007. The discussion is not the same as the concert, and is sold separately by LPC.|
|EXTRA CONCERT! We are delighted to bring back Robert Silverman – who gave us a superb recital last year – with one of the Mozart sonata programs that he is presenting this year as part of the celebrations of Mozart’s 250th birthday anniversary. Expect to hear Sonata #2 in F Major, Sonata #6 in D Major, Sonata #13 in B-flat Major, and Sonata #17 in F Major. For more information, see the Del Valle flyer for the Silverman concert (in PDF).|
"... a pianist’s pianist, unquestionably in the league of today’s superstars." (Seattle Post-Intelligencer)
November 25, 2006: Paul Jacobs
|We are pleased to once again host this amazing young master of the organ. Paul was appointed head of the organ department of Juilliard at age 26, and has recently been profiled by the NY Times and the Wall Street Journal. For more information, see the Del Valle flyer for the Jacobs concert (in PDF). |
"He invites comparison with organ legends E. Power Biggs and Virgil Fox for his musical charisma and combining the soul of an entertainer with the chops of a rock-solid musician." (Hartford Courant)
January 27, 2007: Red Priest
|Named after the flame-haired priest, Antonio Vivaldi, this extraordinary English ensemble has redefined the art of baroque music performance, combining the fruits of extensive research with swashbuckling virtuosity, creative re-composition, heart-on-sleeve emotion and compelling stagecraft. For more information, including full details on their "Pirates of the Baroque" program, please see our PDF flyer.|
"There's absolutely nothing ordinary about the early music ensemble Red Priest, from its quirky costumes and innovative musical arrangements to its zany sense of humor and amazing virtuoso skills." (Virginia Gazette)
|Las Positas College will hold a lecture and discussion on Red Priest Thursday, 25 Jan 2007. The discussion is not the same as the concert, and is sold separately by LPC.|
March 3, 2007: The Fry Street Quartet
All Beethoven Program
|This talented young ensemble is Quartet-in-Residence at Utah State University, and winner of the Millennium Grand Prize at the Fischoff National Chamber Music Competition.

For more information, check out PDF flyer announcing the performance.|
"Fry Street's performance contained elegance and that wonderful chemistry that makes chamber music magical. They have a combination of musical maturity and charisma. The Fry Street Quartet has a capacity for both a lot of energy and also a lot of poetry." (South Bend Tribune)
