Deep Valley Chamber Music Series - An Afternoon of String Quintets
The Deep Valley Chamber Music Series, now in its 5th season, presents the Yokayo Chamber Players in seldom heard performances of three excellent chamber works. The program consists of:
Schubert: String Quintet in C major D. 956 op. posth. 163,
George Onslow: String Quintet No. 15 in C minor, Op. 38, La balle (The Bullet)
Luigi Boccherini: String Quintet in D major, op. 39 #3
The Schubert C major Quintet is a truly outstanding work. It was composed in the summer of 1828, just two months before the ill-fated composer's death. It is a work justifiably considered by many to be one of the greatest compositions in all chamber music.
The performers have been assembled from among the Bay Area and northern California's top musicians and include:
Claudia Bloom & John Konigsmark, violin; Ruth Kahn, viola; Janet Witharm & Joel Cohen, cello.
The Yokayo Chamber Players, a group assembled by Joel Cohen, takes its name, "Yokayo", from the local native-American term for that beautiful, deep valley formed by the Russian River as it passes through the space now known as Ukiah, in Mendocino County, CA.
