2016–2017 Winter Series

Sitkovetsky Trio and David Shifrin

Clarinetist David Shifrin joins violinist Alexander Sitkovetsky, pianist Wu Qian, and cellist Danjulo Ishizaka, in a program featuring the world premiere of a Music@Menlo commission by composer Andy Akiho, winner of the 2014–2015 Luciano Berio Rome Prize. This new work has been deliberately paired with a work of the same instrumentation, Olivier Messiaen’s iconic Quatuor pour la fin du temps (Quartet for the End of Time), the transcendent 1941 chamber music classic that received its extraordinary premiere in a prisoner-of-war camp.
