For this closing concert of the 2018-19 season, MusicAEterna director Aenea M. Keyes has invited two additional Bay Area artists to join in the music-making. In a musical journey from the classical era to the present. The ensemble performs Mozart’s exuberant Piano Quartet No. 2 with violist Stephanie Ng and Shostakovich’s early, romantic Five Pieces with oboist Jesse Rex Barrett.
The quintet closes with Keyes’ own contemplative Pilgrimage for piano, oboe and strings which invites the audience into mindful listening and expresses a musical dialogue between sacred sanctuaries and the pilgrim’s healing journey to peace.
