The Orcas Island Chamber Music Festival is in full swing. Two weeks filled with music and superstar musicians from Aug. 9 to 24. Tickets are still available; go to www.oicmf.org and click on the orange box.
This weekend’s César Salad program is a full meal, say organizers.
“The sustained passion of the César Franck Piano Quintet makes it unquestioningly one of the most intense listening experiences in the chamber music repertoire,” according to festival program note author Jeff O’Kelly.
This is OICMF’s first ever performance of this masterwork.
Choose from Aug. 16 at 7:30 p.m. or Aug. 17 at 5:30 p.m.
Also featured in this concert is the exotic Orientale played by Los Angeles Philharmonic Concertmaster Martin Chalifour and composer Richard Strauss as you’ve never heard him before in the Arabian Dance.
