Overture Concert II

Matthew Lipman, the Calidore String Quartet, and International Program artists

Music@Menlo is excited to inaugurate the Overture Concerts, in which the International Program artists collaborate with festival main-stage artists for the first time. Two performances in Stent Family Hall will include all eleven spectacular International Program performers, who will be joined by pianist Wu Han, violinist Arnaud Sussmann, violist Matthew Lipman, and the Calidore String Quartet. These concerts function as an “overture” to the future of chamber music: world-renowned festival artists will share their knowledge, experience, and traditions with the burgeoning International Program musicians as they perform together, bringing the freshest perspectives to these events. The artists will collectively bridge the gap between the traditions of the past, the master performers of today, and the flourishing of the art form in the future. Please join us to experience the fruits of their collaboration and to witness a glimpse of the bright future of chamber music.
