Chopin 2: Susan Waterfall, Miles Graber, David Kadarauch

Monday, July 16, 2:30 PM PDT

| $15 – $30

Susan Waterfall will discuss and perform a selection of Chopin’s  Mazurkas,  the dance genre where he refined his mastery of the folk idiom and launched his most daring compositional experiments. Susan will also play Chopin’s Barcarolle, Opus 60, and touch on its special place both in Chopin’s output. and as a source for the future pianism of Faure and Debussy.

David Kadarauch, cello, and Miles Graber, piano, will perform Chopin’s Cello Sonata Opus 65. Chopin’s final masterpiece was performed at his last Paris concert and reveals his touching ability to write for the cello and bring new life to sonata form.

For 2021, the Festival is temporarily transplanted to a new indoor venue, the beautiful 1938 Cotton Auditorium in nearby Fort Bragg. One-hour concerts, no intermission, distanced, limited capacity, proof of vaccination required, masks required. Sell-outs are expected due to limited capacity.

Seats arranged in pairs must be purchased in pairs. Orders containing one of a pair of seats may be cancelled.

For the safety of our patrons, it is the Festival’s choice to maintain distanced seating. Allowing paired seats to be purchased individually would disrupt this aspect of our safety plan, which, for many patrons, is the basis of their decision to attend in 2021.

“Waterfall’s productions always present exciting, absorbing playing of great music, but are also rare, distinctive examples of what can be called music education, though they’re more conversational, truly a sharing of perspective, interest, anecdote. There’s a sense of immediacy to her delivery, weaving in and out of the playing, an intimately conceived present awareness of this heritage. It’s something unique that needs to be experienced.” Ken Bullock, Berkeley Daily Planet
