Stanford Live Schedule 2013-14

Joshua Bell CLARION CALL: Joshua Bell plays a concert next Feb. 8 for Stanford Live performing-arts series

ITZHAK PERLMAN, the esteemed Israeli-American violinist, will kick off the 2013-14 season of Stanford Live. Perlman's Music Program (Sept. 22) showcases the talents of young musicians, with Perlman acting as conductor and mentor.

Other classical-music highlights of the upcoming season include perennial favorites the Kronos Quartet (Jan. 15, 2014) performing new pieces by Philip Glass and Valentin Silvestrov. Chanticleer and the New Century Chamber Orchestra will combine instruments for the first time next March. Their joint concert, called "Atlantic Crossing," is designed to replicate the music of the period between the World Wars as experienced on a luxury liner. The program takes place March 20, 2014. Superstar violinist Joshua Bell performs Feb. 8.

One of the major projects of the season looks to be "Linked Verse" (Dec. 7), a multimedia concerto by Stanford composer Jaroslaw Kapuscinsky. It will feature the stage magic of OpenEnded Group, a digital-media collective, with music by sho player Ko Ishikawa and cellist Maya Beiser. The evening aims to compete with Avatar in its use of 3D stereoscopic videos—glasses provided.

The Stanford Lively Arts 2013-14 season begins Sept. 22. Most concerts take place at the new, highly touted Bing Concert Hall on the Stanford Campus; ticket prices range from about $20 to $75 for most shows. Subscription tickets go on sale June 3; single tickets will be available Sept. 7; see live.stanford.edu for ticket details. For a complete schedule, see Metroactive.com.
