The Lobero Theatre Chamber Music Project, which launched with pianist Alessio Bax and violinist Benjamin Beilman last month, had the second performance of its triple feature with pianist Louis Schwizgebel at the weekend.

The Swiss keyboardist was accompanied by violinists Beilman and Ida Kavafian – a teacher at the Curtis Institute –, cellist Clive Greensmith – a veteran member of the Tokyo String Quartet –, and violist Heiichiro Ohyama, former maestro of the now defunct Santa Barbara Chamber Orchestra.

The quintet participated in an entertaining program with Beethoven’s quartet for piano and string in E-flat major, Prokofiev’s sonata for two violins in C major, and Brahms’ quartet for piano and strings no. 1 in G minor.

It is planned to make the event an annual festival.

Bravo to that…
