(E) The Fourteenth Season of Music@Menlo, one of the best music festivals in Silicon Valley, is promising to make us travel musically this year and explore, according to the festival , “the cultural dialogue between Russia and the West through seven main-stage Concert Programs; four artist-curated Carte Blanche Concerts that research the season theme through programs of exclusively Russian music; three Encounters, the festival’s signature series of multimedia symposia; fourteen performances by the gifted young artists of Music@Menlo’s Chamber Music Institute; a lineup of master classes; and Café Conversations; and last but not least a forum for discussions on topics related to music and the arts, led by the festival’s top-tier musicians and guests”.
There is not much else to say – just go – and enjoy the music 🙂
