The Deep Valley Chamber Music Series, now in its 5th season, presents the Yokayo Chamber Players in seldom heard performances of three excellent string quintets:
- Franz Schubert: String Quintet in C major, Op. 163
- George Onslow: String Quintet No. 15 in C minor, Op. 38, La balle (The Bullet)
- Luigi Boccherini: String Quintet in D major, Op. 39 No. 3
The Schubert C major Quintet is a truly outstanding work. It was composed in the summer of 1828, just two months before the composer's death. It is a work considered by many to be one of the greatest compositions in all of chamber music literature.
The Yokayo Chamber Players, a group assembled by Joel Cohen, takes its name Yokayo from the local native-American term for that beautiful, deep valley formed by the Russian River as it passes through the space now known as Ukiah, in Mendocino County, CA.
General Admission is $25. Youth tickets ($10) available at the door.
