The Salastina Music Society

Eclectic Salon - 20 years of concerts at Villa Aurora

On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of the German artist residence in Pacific Palisades, Villa Aurora is going to present a series of concerts, embracing the diversity of musical production in Los Angeles. 
From sound artists to Brahms, from microtones to poetry and music, this program offers an opportunity to celebrate the scope of musical styles and ensembles, many of which have emerged over the last two decades in Los Angeles.

Masterpiece Discovery: Brahms String Sextet No.1 in B flat

Hosted by Brian Lauritzen, from KUSC and LA Philharmonic’s “Inside the Music”
Performers: The Salastina Music Society, featuring Clive Greensmith, cellist of the Tokyo String Quartet

Salastina Music Society’s Masterpiece Discovery concert format shines the spotlight on great pillars of the classical repertoire. The series has included Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Schoenberg’s Verklärte Nacht, Mendelssohn’s Octet for Strings, Brahms’ Clarinet Quintet, Wagner’s Siegfried Idyll, and many more. By sharing well-chosen musical examples (and explaining their meaning within the context of the piece as a whole), first-time and veteran concert-goers alike enjoy a uniquely enriching performance experience. Each performance is followed by a Q&A, which invites the audience to further engage with the material they’ve just heard
Currently in its fifth season, the Salastina Music Society is an L.A.-based concert series dedicated to presenting world-class performances of chamber music. Since its founding, Salastina has earned a national reputation for bringing a fresh approach to the classical concert experience, resulting in innovative performances with broad audience appeal. To date, dozens of Salastina performances have been broadcast nationally on American Public Media’s Performance Today.
