Event Notes

× California Festival: A Celebration of New Music
Music@Menlo joins more than 50 participating music organizations from California in celebrating the state’s legacy of experimentation and free-spirited artistry, showcasing music created in the last five years. As part of the inaugural California Festival, the Sitkovetsky Trio performs a program at Music@Menlo highlighting a work by composer Julia Adolphe, which was commissioned for them in 2022.

From the trio: “We are so excited and proud to return to Menlo and bring you this passionately romantic program full of verve and imagination. We start our concert with a new work by the phenomenal young composer Julia Adolphe who wrote the piece especially for us in memory of her father. This emotional and life affirming trio was premiered by us at the Cham- ber Music Society of Lincoln Center earlier this year and we can’t wait to introduce it to the Menlo Audience. The rest of the program features the Great Romantics; Edvard Grieg, Cecile Chaminade; a Trailblazer for female composers in the 19th Century; and we finish the program with Felix Mendelssohn’s 2nd Piano Trio, undoubtedly one of his finest and most dramatic works. We can’t wait to see you at our performance!"
