Piedmont, CA: Piedmont Chamber Music Festival — Classical

  • Piedmont Center for the Arts 801 Magnolia Avenue Piedmont, CA 94611 (map)

We think of Mozart as “Mister Classical,” the composer who embodies the balance, poise, and grace of the Classical period. But we also know about his impish, irreverent side, which provided the magic for his works. On PCMF 2019’s opening concert, we couple Mozart’s radiant Grande Sestetto Concertante with Francis Poulenc’s neo-classical Violin Sonata, as well as Behzad Ranjbaran’s poetic Shiraz, a piece inspired by classical Persian culture, for a classical journey that will expand and challenge what you know about classical music.
