After working in relative obscurity during his lifetime, forty years after his untimely death Franz Schubert was recognized as one of the colossal creative forces in music. In this presentation a distinguished group of musicians performs Schubert's "String Quintet in C Major," one of the greatest achievements in the chamber music form.

The fate of Ariadne, who helped Theseus to overcome the Minotaur and was abandoned by him on the island of Naxos, was an inspiration for numerous works of both visual and performing arts. Haydn took the myth as the subject of his cantata, composed in 1791. Recorded on 8/19/2014.

The three peices on this program demonstrate the invention and versatility that characterize all of Mozart's chamber music. The first, Flute Quartet in C Major, is a relatively recent discovery that is believed to be written by Mozart, but doubts of its authenticity lend an aura of mystery to the piece. The second, Quintet in E-flat Major for Piano and Winds, is one of several virtuoso pieces that Mozart wrote for winds. The final piece's innocent title, "Divertimento," denoting music that is light and easily digestible, should not fool the listener; this in one of Mozart's most formidable compositions. This is chamber music at its most intimate and expressive. Recorded on 8/22/2017.

La Jolla Symphony & Chorus performs excerpts from the season-opening "Crossing the Rue St. Paul" concert, with commentary from the stage by Conductor Steven Schick and questions from the audience. Recorded on 11/3/2017.

The serenade is a venerable 18th-century form as practiced by Haydn, Mozart and others. In his "Serenade in D Minor" Antonin Dvo ák adapted the form to his own purposes, scoring for an unusual combination of instruments and introducing an unusual thematic unity. The result is a piece of good-spirited, sunny music that reflects Dvo ák's own optimistic personality. Recorded on 08/20/2017.

The past few years have been difficult ones for France, as that nation has been buffeted by strong crosswinds from every direction. Paris-based circus artist, composer, and percussionist Roland Auzet fights back in a new theatrical percussion concerto written for, and co-commissioned by, UCSD graduate student Fiona Digney. The balm of Malhler's Fourth Symphony, featuring one of the most beautiful slow movements ever written, helps to calm the currents and ease troubled minds. Recorded on 02/11/2018.

Jazz has been hailed as "America's original art form," and the annual Jazz Camp at UC San Diego is a five-day immersive summer program designed for intermediate to advanced level jazz musicians, ages 14 adult. Students work directly with internationally renowned jazz artists, exploring styles ranging from classic bebop to contemporary open-form. The Camp culminates in a finale concert performed by eight student ensembles, each under the direction of a faculty member. This program showcases highlights from the 2018 Finale concert. Recorded on 06/29/2018.
