Danielle Belen & Friends in Visalia

Jun 28, 2012 | 07:30PM - 09:30PM
Rising violin star Danielle Belen has assembled a veritable constellation of virtuoso talent for this very special performance.  Winner of the national Sphinx Competition in 2008, Ms. Belen's impassioned precision has led her to solo performances with major orchestras across the United States, including the fabled Cleveland Orchestra, the Boston Pops, the Pittsburg, Atlanta and San Francisco Symphonies. She plays a rare and powerful 1709 Allessandro Gagliano violin from the Mandell Collection of Southern California.

The highlight of the evening is Edward Elgar's remarkable Piano Quintet in A Minor, Opus 84.  Many of Elgar's devoted followers consider this to be is his crowning achievement as a composer. It is so many things at one time--expansive, almost symphonic, animated, eloquent, mysterious, contemplative. Yet it is also profoundly onething, profoundly human, a magical half hour of musical poetry.

Joining Danielle will be cellist David Requiro, winner of the prestigious 2007 Naumberg Prize, violist Sarah Sutton, who studied for years with legend Yehudi Menuhin in London, Juilliard graduate pianist Jennie Jung, and San Francisco Opera violinist Elbert Tsai.
