Parlor Piano with Daniel Adam Maltz

Enjoy Haydn and Mozart’s piano works performed as they intended them to be heard — in a private home on a period instrument.

During the Classical era in Vienna, composers expected their keyboard music to entertain relatively small audiences in more intimate settings than today’s large concert halls. And, the era’s pianos (known as “fortepianos”) are very different from modern Steinways.

During this intimate performance, guests will be welcomed into the Camron-Stanford House parlor for an experience unlike any other.

Date Selection:

  • Friday, February 25 at 7pm (Welcome reception at 6)
  • Saturday, February 26 at 7pm (Welcome reception at 6)
  • Sunday, February 27 at 2pm (Welcome reception at 1)

Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival @ CSH

Camron-Stanford House is pleased to welcome The Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival on Sunday, June 20th, 2021 at 3:00pm.

Founded in 2011, The Trinity Alps Music Festival is celebrating its tenth season this year, with a series of summer concerts across California. On June 20th at 3:00pm, they will present a special live, in-person, outdoor concert on the shore of Lake Merritt in Oakland, in the gardens of the historic Camron-Stanford House.

The concert is open for all to attend, with garden seating provided on a first-come, first-served basis. Admission is free, but music-lovers are encouraged to make a “suggested donation” to support the musicians and the festival. A limited number of front-row seats will be available to be reserved for a $50 admission fee. The exhibit galleries of Camron-Stanford House will also be open for visitors to enjoy. A new exhibit, Tattooed and Tenacious: Inked Women in California’s History will be on display.

Chairs will be provided for sitting on the lawn of the garden, between heritage rose bushes and in the dappled shade of old-growth trees. However guests are encouraged to bring their own seating or picnic blanket, and to consider bringing blankets or extra layers in case of cool breezes. Guests are welcome to bring their own food and drinks to enjoy picnic style if they wish.

The featured music for all concerts in the Trinity Alps Music Festival Series will center around Antonin Dvorak’s masterpiece of chamber music, the Piano Quintet in A Major, Op. 81. The work is written on a symphonic scale, full of Dvorak’s lively folk-like dance rhythms and tuneful melodies. It is also a workout – over 40 minutes of inspired, joyous music for the 5 musicians to craft together, supporting each other as the instruments trade of solos. Other selections on the program will feature works the musicians will be recording during the month, and some concerts will also feature opening acts by local students and kids participating in music lessons.

“2020 was such a challenging year for all of us,” says festival director Ian Scarfe, “This concert is the best possible way I can imagine celebrating a return to in-person concerts.” A professional concert pianist, Scarfe has spent the last year adapting to the pandemic life of digital concerts, recorded or streamed on Zoom. Scarfe will be performing on a 1928 Steinway generously loaned by Callahan Piano Services in Alameda, and joined by a string quartet made up of his colleagues, guest artists of the Trinity Alps Chamber Music Festival.

More information about the festival and the scheduled concerts can be found at www.TrinityAlpsCMF.org


This performance is free to attend. First come, first served. Garden gates will open at approximately 2:30pm. To purchase reserved seats at $50/each, please email event organizer, Ian Scarfe at iscarfe@gmail.com. Reserved seating is limited.
