An Afternoon in Vienna: Beethoven and Schubert
Enjoy the beautiful music of Beethoven and Schubert. During this lecture recital, pianist Ian Scarfe will describe the context of early 1800's Vienna, when Ludwig van Beethoven's music was breaking conventions and changing the history of art. A young Franz Schubert was there to witness it all, responding with his own works of genius. Scarfe enjoys a busy career as a piano soloist, collaborative pianist and chamber musician, averaging over 100 performances each year. He is the founder and director of the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival, which presents annual retreats and concert tours for musicians from around the world. Based in "North State" California's scenic Trinity County, the home of the Trinity Alps Wilderness, the festival has given over 200 concerts, including at many local schools and summer camps. Ian is a founding member of the Vinifera Trio, based in California's wine country, and the Zurich Mozart Trio, based in Zurich, Switzerland. He is also a founding member of the group Nonsemble 6, renowned for its fully staged performances of Arnold Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire. An eloquent and articulate speaker, Ian is a frequent lecturer on music, giving talks on music appreciation and history at universities, adult education programs and retirement communities. Ian's appearances with orchestras prominently feature the music of Beethoven. He is currently on staff as a music associate at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music, where he earned a Master's Degree in 2008 and an Artist's Certificate in 2010. He earned a Bachelor's of Music Degree in 2005 from Willamette University. Need a ride? The OFJCC provides door-to-door rides for mobility-impaired seniors for $10 per round trip.
