The Americans

The Americans

The Americans present the saga of rural recording artists who became unlikely stars in the emerging genres of country and blues, setting standards for popular music to this day. Performing faithful renditions of early blues, folk, and country on banjo, fiddle, upright bass, and guitar, the band discusses the unprecedented melding of cultures and musical genres precipitated by the American recording industry’s boom in the 1920s and ‘30s.

The Verdi Quartet comprised of violinists Susanne Rabenschlag and Matthias Ellinger, violist Karin Wolf, and cellist Zoltán Paulich is widely considered as one of Germany’s leading chamber music ensembles praised for its “nobility and subtlety” (Augsburger Allgemeine, Germany) and “wistful and completely enthralling playing” (Allgäuer Zeitung, Germany). Quartet in Residence at the Music Conservatory in Mannheim since 2004, these four colleagues have performed to great acclaim throughout Europe, North America, Asia, and Africa. This recital is the culmination of the Verdi Quartet’s one-week residency at California State University, Fresno, during which the ensemble will present a series of master classes and lectures.

Jon Nakamatsu

Works by Mozart, Schubert, and Brahms

Jon Nakamatsu

Jon Nakamatsu continues to draw unanimous praise as a true aristocrat of the keyboard, whose playing combines elegance, clarity, and electrifying power. Gold Medallist at the 1997 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition, this Japanese-American pianist plays with “the calm assurance that comes of having both a solid technique and a gentle, introspective, interpretive spirit” (The New York Times). His brilliant but unassuming musicianship have made him a clear favorite throughout the world both on the concert circuit and in the recording studio leading to collaborations with such acclaimed conductors as James Conlon, Philippe Entremont, Marek Janowski, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, and Michael Tilson Thomas.
