SFCO All-Star Quintet Monday Night Chamber Music Society
The occasional Monday night finds this gaggle of friends and fellow SFCO All-Stars surveying the incredible repertoire for string quintet. Having chosen two of their favorites, Felix Mendelssohn's early String Quintet in A Major, op. 18 and Johannes Brahms' late String Quintet in G Major, op. 111, we bring them to the Freight for your listening pleasure.
Icelandic violinist Hrabba Atladottir studied in Berlin, Germany with professor Axel Gerhardt and professor Tomasz Tomaszewski. After finishing her studies, Hrabba worked as a freelancing violinist in Berlin for five years, regularly playing with the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, Deutsche Oper, and Deutsche Symphonieorchester. Hrabba also participated in a world tour with the Icelandic pop artist Björk, and a Germany tour with violinist Nigel Kennedy. Joshua Kosman, music critic of San Francisco Chronicle, praised her performance of Vivaldi’s “Spring”, and called her violin playing “delicate but fervent”.
