San Francisco Early Music Society MUSICIANS FROM THE VALLEY OF THE MOON FESTIVAL

The Multifaceted Brahms
Musicians from the Valley of the Moon Music Festival present a riveting look at Brahms from three different angles - from the highly refined and exquisite Horn Trio written for natural horn, to the sublime songs for contralto, viola and piano, to the winning and show-stopping Piano Quartet in G Minor. The group will perform on historical instruments, including an original Viennese fortepiano from 1841. Take advantage of this extremely rare opportunity to hear the transparency of Brahms’ contrapuntal lines come through clearly and beautifully, in a performance featuring some of the country’s leading chamber musicians: Emily Marvosh, contralto; Sadie Glass, natural horn; Bettina Mussumeli, violin; Jodi Levitz, viola; Tanya Tomkins, cello; and Eric Zivian, fortepiano.
