Mauricio Kagel’s last important work condensed his dramatic world to a masterful piano trio. The Argentine-born German poignantly remembered such 18th century composers as Mozart while spinning a dream of farewell. For this valedictory work Lyris Quartet members will join pianist Steven Vanhauwaert, hailed by the LA Times for his “monster technique,” Making his Jacaranda debut, pianist David Kaplan will lead oboe, clarinet, horn & bassoon in Mozart’s landmark quintet. Kaplan has been called “excellent and adventurous by The New York Times and praised by the Boston Globe for “grace and fire.” The highly acclaimed former LA Phil principal clarinetist Michelle Zukovsky will partner with pianist Gloria Cheng for a classic pair of 20th century duos: Alban Berg’s expressionist Four Pieces, and Witold Lutoslawski’s extrovert Dance Preludes. A Jacaranda perennial since the first season, Grammy-winning pianist Gloria Cheng recently added an Emmy award for her local PBS documentary Montage: Great Film Composers and the Piano.
