Chamber Music Returns to the Dock Street Theatre

Chamber Music Charleston presents music of Beethoven and Brahms

December 18, 2018 (Charleston, SC) – Chamber Music Charleston (CMC) is pleased to continue their 2018-2019 Ovation Concert Series with a performance on Sunday, January 13, 2019 at 3pm at the historic Dock Street Theatre (135 Church Street).

Guest violinist Francisco Fullana and pianist Jiayi Shi join CMC violinist Lydia Chernicoff, violists Ban and Jenny Weiss and cellist Timothy O’Malley in a program that includes Beethoven’s Violin Sonata No. 4 and Brahms’ String Quintet No. 2.

Spanish violinist Francisco Fullana is acclaimed for his performances in both Europe and the United States. Principal Violin of The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra since 2016, Fullana is praised as an “amazing talent” (Gustavo Dudamel) and “a paragon of delicacy” (San Francisco’s Classical Voice). Starting in 2018, Fullana has been invited to join the prestigious Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society Two.

Orchid Classics will release Fullana’s new recording in March 2018, which includes Max Richter’s “Four Seasons Recomposed” with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra under Carlos Izcaray, curated in conjunction with a series of contemporary solo works examining the tradition of baroque music. His ongoing collaboration with Argentinian bandoneonist J.P. Jofre will culminate with the 2018 premiere of Jofre’s Double Concerto for bandoneon and violin, a work commissioned by the Balearic Islands Symphony, San Antonio Chamber Orchestra and New York City’s Metropolis Ensemble to honor Leonard Bernstein’s Centennial. Fullana currently performs on the 1735 “Mary Portman” ex-Kreisler Guarneri del Gesu violin, kindly on loan from Clement and Karen Arrison through the Stradivari Society of Chicago.

CMC offers a wide arrange of ticket prices – from $5 tickets for students, teachers and parents to $50 VIP tickets, which include a private post-concert reception with the artists.

The final Ovation Concert, on February 26, 2019, will feature Guest Pianist Andrew Armstrong and violinist Jennifer Frautschi joining musicians for CMC for “A Celebration of Frances,” with Ravel’s virtuosic “Tzaigane” and Franck’s Piano Quintet in f minor.
