2021 Festival

Concert Program IX

The festival season’s final program brings together signature statements by two of Romanticism’s essential voices. Gabriel Fauré’s Violin Sonata no. 1 in A major, a triumph of the composer’s youth, demonstrates the emergence of a singular musical voice that would define a generation. The season concludes with Antonín Dvořák’s Piano Quintet, one of the Czech composer’s most influential creations, which likewise endures among the most cherished works in the repertoire.

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.
