The Exploring Together themed season offers a “music-filled journey around the globe,” and launches Saturday, Oct. 6, at 7:30 p.m., with the Telegraph Quartet.

The Telegraph Quartet first appeared at Carnegie Hall in Weill Recital Hall in 2015 along with violinist Ian Swensen and pianist Jeff LaDeur, and will be return to Carnegie Hall in 2018 for its Naumburg Award Recital featuring the world premiere of Robert Sirota’s third string quartet.

The quartet will be opening the concert with Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s lyrical String Quartet in D major, K. 575 “The Prussian,” followed by Erwin Schulhoff’s Five Pieces for string quartet; described as a collection of “spirited and colorful dances.”

The quartet will be concluding the program with Antonin Dvořák’s warm and playful String Quartet No. 10 in E-flat Major, Op. 51 “Slavonic.”

The exploration continues with the California Chamber Orchestra as they take music lovers on a music-filled journey around the globe.

With four performances intended to take listeners “somewhere familiar on the way to something new and unique,” the orchestra will first be performing Places on Nov. 3.

Next, in partnership with David Wells and the Temecula Valley Master Chorale, the orchestra will be performing Gifts on Dec. 1.

Cellist Lars Hoefs will be joining the orchestra to perform Love on Feb. 2, 2019; and the orchestra’s last performance is Connections on Apr. 27, 2019.

“I am so excited to be your guide for this musical journey,” Dana Zimbric, Artistic Director and Conductor of the California Chamber Orchestra recently enthused. “At each stop along the way, I’ll put the music in context with stories about the history, art, people and places that helped shape what we’re hearing.”

Temecula Presents’ 14th Classical Music Season also features Fei-Fei, solo pianist, on Jan. 5, 2019; and Joshua Roman, cellist, on May 25, 2019.
