Back by popular demand, the Bay Area’s own New Esterhazy String Quartet—Kati Kyme and Lisa Weiss on violins, Anthony Martin on viola, and cellist William Skeen, with SFCO music director and violist, Ben Simon—just completed an historic three-year “Haydn Project,” performing all 68 delicious Haydn string quartets in over 18 concerts. Tonight, the group performs a virtuosic string quintet arrangement of Haydn’s great musical masterpiece, Creation, which he originally composed for a full orchestra and chorus.
Classical at the Freight brings the Bay Area's best classical musicians to the Freight for an hour of top-flight chamber music in an informal, friendly atmosphere. San Francisco Chamber Orchestra music director Benjamin Simon is your host; his goal is to un-stuffify and de-mystify classical music for the general music lover, sharing the joys and rewards of this timeless art with new audiences young and old.
