Acclaimed concert series returns

Robin Fisher Robin Fisher
California State University, Sacramento will once again host some of the finest classical music performers in the nation in its New Millennium Concert Series this spring. Launched to celebrate the dawn of the 21st century, the series has become an annual showcase of world-class talent. Four concerts are featured this year, all taking place in the intimate Music Recital Hall in Capistrano Hall.

Pianist Pascal Rogé opens the series. The award-winning Decca recording artist will perform works by Debussy and Ravel. Rogé will be joined by fellow pianist Natsuki Fukasawa in the second half of the program, and the pair will perform works for two pianos by Rachmaninov and Ravel. This special performance is set for 8 p.m., Wednesday, Feb. 11.

The renowned Juilliard String Quartet, a University favorite, will perform works by Mozart and Dvorak in the second series concert. The group has released numerous albums, including a 1994 recording of quartets by Debussy and Ravel that was named one of the “100 Best Classical Recordings” by the Times Magazine of London. The quartet is scheduled to perform at 8 p.m., Friday, March 12.

Described by San Francisco Classical Voice as “profoundly moving” and performing with a “rare blend of passion and precision,” the Chamber Ensemble of the Pacific will perform next in the series. Schumann’s Quintet for Piano and Strings will be featured in its concert set for 8 p.m., Wednesday, April 21.

A special Mother’s Day event will be the closing concert of the series. Sparkling soprano Robin Fisher and some of the Bay Area’s finest period instrument players will present “Mother’s Day with the Bach Family.” The program will include instrumental and vocal works by J.S. Bach and his sons, and feature a performance of the Sixth Brandenburg Concerto. This concert is set for 8 p.m., Sunday, May 9.

Individual tickets for concerts in the series are $20 and $30. A subscription to all four performances is $75, a 25 percent savings on the cost of individual ticket purchases.
