Classical Music News for September/October 2015:


LE SALON DE MUSIQUES will launch its sixth season on October 4, 2015 at 4pm with a performance of two pieces by Schubert and the U.S. premiere of Philipp Sharwenka’s “String Quartet in D Minor Op. 117.”

Produced, directed and organized by French-American concert pianist and founding artistic director Francois Choucan, with co-artistic director John Walz, LE SALON DE MUSIQUES has been called “the essence and the nectar” of chamber music in L.A.
Inspired by “Le Salon de Musique” created by Queen Marie-Antoinette in Versailles, and by the “Sachubertiades” created by Franz Schubert in Vienna, LE SALON DE MUSIQUES is a unique musical experience, one like no other in L.A. All concerts are performed on the 5th floor of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, with the audience sitting close by the musicians. A musicologist introduces each recital, followed by an informal Q & A with the
musicians and a champagne buffet catered by Patina.

Concert No. 2 will take place on Sunday Nov. 8 at 4 pm. Featured are Elissa Johnstone, soprano; Jessica Guideri, violin; Yi Zhou, viola; Jacob Braun, cello; and Robert Thies, piano. The all-Strauss program will include “Four Last Songs for Soprano and Piano.”

For information about the Dec. 6, 2015 and Jan. 10, 2016 concerts, visit General admission $75; $35 students. Special earlybird tickets are available. Dorothy Chandler Pavilion, 135 N. Grand Ave.
