Christian McBride w/ Dvorak String Quintet & Schubert Trout Quintet

For this exclusive performance that showcases the diversity of Christian McBride’s musical reach, the bassist is joined by piano and string quartet for 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. 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, Principle Violist of the SF Opera Orchestra; cellist Jennifer Kloetzel, founding member of the Cypress String Quartet, and GRAMMY-nominated pianist Robert Koenig.
