A program of chamber music from the late Classical and Romantic periods, recalling McBride’s inspired collaboration with the Calder Quartet for a program of Bartók during Season 2.
For this exclusive performance that showcases the diversity of Christian McBride’s musical reach, the bassist is joined by piano and string quartet. The program consists of Dvořák’s String Quintet No.2 in G Major, Op. 77 as well as Schubert’s Piano Quintet in A Major, D.667 (Trout), with artists including violinist Ian Swensen, the Isaac Stern Chair of Violin at San Francisco Conservatory; Evan Price, violinist with the Hot Club of San Francisco and Turtle Island Quartet; Carla Maria Rodrigues, Principal Violist of the SF Opera Orchestra; cellist Jennifer Kloetzel, founding member of the Cypress String Quartet, and GRAMMY-nominated pianist Robert Koenig.
“The deep, dark-maple tone that Christian McBride elicits from an upright bass is one of jazz’s forthright pleasures.”
— The New York Times
“One of the premier musicians of his generation…”
