This Weekend

SFCV didn't post new blurbs to the Listening Ahead column this week, and I didn't get to plug a couple of interesting performances you might want to see:
  • At the Hillside Club in Berkeley, the Presidio Ensemble is performing what looks like a totally kick-ass concert of Kagel, Biber, Ryther, Debussy, and Foote; the big piece on the concert is Debussy's String Quartet. Tickets are $15, one of the best concert buys around.

  • A new opera by Lisa Scola Prosek, Belfagor, premieres at San Francisco's Thick House, 1695-18th Street, Potrero Hill, SF, this weekend. It's based on a comic Machiavelli novella (!) and is directed in a commedia dell'arte style by Jim Cave. Phone (415) 401-8081 for tickets and more information.
