Cal Performances Season Announcement

Cal Performances announced the 2015-16 season today. I wasn't there and the press release hasn't arrived yet - which has led me to wonder whether I have dropped off their press list - but their web site has performance list posted.

Some highlights include:

  • A residency by the St. Louis Symphony Orchestra, David Robertson conducting (of course). They're doing a pair of programs; the first is the new John Adams Sax Concerto with Mahler 5, the second is Des Canyons aux Etoiles. No mention of who will play the virtuoso piano part for the Messiaen, but I will be there regardless.
  • Another residency by the Simon Bolivar Orchestra, Gustavo Dudamel conducting (of course).
  • A concert by the Ensemble Intercontemporaine, which will include the sublime sur Incises. And some other interesting music.
  • Takacs Quartet, two concerts of old and new music
  • Danish Quartet, two concerts of old and new music
  • Yefim Bronfman plays a lot of Prokofiev
  • Mark Morris / Phil Baroque, L'Allegro, etc.
  • Mariinsky Ballet, Cinderella
  • Twyla Tharp Dance Company
  • Tallis Scholars
  • Brentano Quartet, Bach & Shostakovich
  • Kronos Quartet, Terry Riley's Sun Rings
  • Matthias Goerne singing Die Schoene Muellerin
And more! But very little of it is music by women.

Updated: Because how could I forgot Matthias Goerne?
