Curious Flights Celebrates Britten

Direct from clarinetist Brenden Guy comes an update on the upcoming Curious Flights concert. It is a fabulous program of little-heard works by Benjamin Britten:

A Britten Celebration
Tuesday, June 4, 2013 at 8 p.m.
San Francisco Conservatory of Music Concert Hall, 50 Oak Street, San Francisco

Britten – Wind Sextet                                                                                      
            Valinor Winds
Britten – Phantasy Quintet in F minor                                                             
            Friction Quartet & Jason Pyszkowski
Britten – Canticle III, Op. 55: Still Falls the Rain
            Brian Thorsett, tenor
            Kevin Rivard, horn
            Ulysses Loken, piano
Britten, Matthews – Movements for a Clarinet Concerto                                                 
            Curious Flights Symphony Orchestra
            Alasdair Neale, conductor
            Brenden Guy, clarinet

I heard Brian Thorsett and Kevin Rivard in the Britten Serenade at NCCO a couple of years back and they were great. It's a wonderful program all around!

I am grieved that I can't be at Curious Flights (jujitsu class in Berkeley Tuesday nights), but I hope you can be. Tickets are a bargain at $10 (students) and $15 (general); buy from Brown Paper Tickets or at the door.
