Music@Menlo’s nineteenth season offers nine programs presented over three weekends, three trios of concerts comprising mini-festivals in their own right. This summer’s second set of programs “Modern Romance,” begins with one of Ludwig van Beethoven’s Opus 1 Piano Trios, which loudly proclaimed the arrival of an audacious new musical voice which was destined to alter the course of Western music forever. The concert concludes with Felix Mendelssohn’s String Quintet no. 2, composed at the height of his career, a work combining Classical elegance with Romantic passion.
All concert programs are performed at 4:00 p.m. in the Spieker Center for the Arts, Menlo School, and at 6:00 p.m. outdoors in the Middle School Courtyard of Menlo School. You can also watch via livestream – log in to your account on Music@Menlo’s website to watch here.
