Maurice Ravel is the “Old-Timer”

Chamber Music Palisades Starts the New Year

With Music of the 20th and 21st Centuries

             On Tuesday, January 15, the long-running Westside chamber music series,

Chamber Music Palisades, will open the 2013 half of its annual series with music

composed in the last 100 years by composers Maurice Ravel, Norman Dello Joio,

George Gershwin and jazz composer, Michael Publig.

            “We are especially excited about this program because, while the works range

from the very early 20th century to the present, they all have rhythmic and tonal

innovation in common,” said Delores Stevens and Susan Greenberg, CMP Co-Artistic


            The concert will begin at 8 pm in CMP’s familiar home, the Charles

Moore-designed sanctuary at St. Matthew’s Parish on Bienveneda in Pacific Palisades.

            Celebrated violinist Ida Levin will join pianist Stevens to perform

 Ravel’s radiant Sonata for Violin and Piano.  Winner of the International Johannes

 Brahms Competition, cellist Alexander Suleiman, will join flutist Greenberg

and pianist Stevens in Dello Joio’s Trio for Flute, Cello and Piano.  Greenberg and

 Stevens will be joined by acclaimed bassoonist Judith Farmer to perform the World

Premiere of  “time in_time out”, a new work by Michael Publig.  Finally, a medley of

songs by George Gershwin will be sung by soprano Karen Benjamin, who starred in

the original Los Angeles production of Phantom of the Opera and with the Pittsburgh

Symphony Orchestra in a tribute to Stephen Sondheim.

             Now in its 16th consecutive season of presenting the finest musicians in the

Southland in intimate chamber programs, Chamber Music Palisades is also active in

presenting free concerts in local schools.  CMP has presented more than 35 school music

programs since its inception in 1997.
