Classical Music News for March/April 2006:


The Music Guild will once again present its Sunday afternoon "Coffee, Cakes & Chamber Music" series in Brentwood. Four programs have been announced, all of which will take place at University Synagogue, 11960 Sunset Blvd. at 3 pm. Complimentary coffee, cakes and cookies are served from 2.30-3 pm and at intermission.

The new season commences on April 23 with the Calder String Quartet playing pices by Haydn, Bartok and Beethoven. The Janaki String Trio is featured May 7, playing Penderecki, Dohnanyi and Beethoven, followed by Members of Rossetti String Qaurtet & Friends on June 11 (Brahms, Tchaikovsky).

The season concludes June 25 with The Capitol Ensenble offering pieces by Mozart and Brahms.

"We are especially delighted to be able to present programs...featuring Tchaikovsky"s Souvenir of Florence, Brahm's B Flat Sextet, G Major Sextet and Mozart's String Quartet in C Major K.515," commented executive director Eugene Golden. "These are magnificent works that are not easy to program as they require more rehearsals and the ideal combination of musicians. Two of the musicians are Philip Levy and Andrew Schulman, both former members of the Academy of St. Martins in the Fields."

Golden added, "I must say it was nick and tuck as to whether we would do the series since we lost a major sponsor who advised us just last November that it would be unable to fund this coming season. They had a late policy change stating no organization would be funded for more than four years. To date we have been unable to replace this sponsor, but have decided to proceed with the concerts and somehow absorb the loss of $10,000. We hope to sell more tickets than usual or obtain additional contributions."
