The Da Camera Players – an elite group of musicians – performs Beethoven’s (1770 – 1827) “Spring” Sonata for violin and piano in F, Op. 24. This piece is described as one of composer’s happiest work. The program also includes American composer Samuel Barber’s (1910 – 1981) String Quartet in b, Op. 11 and Concerto in D, Op21, for violin, a haunting piece for piano, violin and string quartet by French composer Ernest Chausson (1855 – 1899).

Internationally acclaimed, violinist Ida Levin leads The Da Camera Players, who include Tien Hsin Wu, violin; Tereza Stanislav, violin; Brian Dembow, viola, Antonio Lysy, cello and Anton Nel, piano. Levin is currently a chamber music faculty member of The Colburn School for the Perfoming Arts in Los Angeles and is a senior artist at the Marlboro Festival and guest of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center.

Completed in 1931, the Pasadena Civic Auditorium was planned by Chicago Bennett, Parsons and Frost and takes its inspiration from the countries surrounding the Mediterranean. The Gold Room features rosette ceiling moldings, brass chandeliers and the gilded hues of the walls and velvet draperies.

The Da Camera Players III concert takes place on Sunday, May 4 at 8:00 p.m. at the Pasadena Civic Auditorium located at 300 E. Green St. in Pasadena. For more information visit www.DaCamera.org.
