San Francisco's Home for Great Concerts since 1970


Works by Othmar Schoeck, Charles Ives, William Bolcom and Olivier Messiaen.20th and 21st Century music specialists ChamberBridge invite you to an afternoon of freshly considered art song. Using their respective homes of Switzerland and Danbury, CT as points of departure, Zimmermann and Bruckmann have built a program starting with the works of the rarely performed Swiss composer Othmar Schoeck and Yankee rebel Charles Ives. They also branch into the first taste of their year-long in-depth exploration of the work and influence of Olivier Messiaen, whose birth centenary is in 2008.
