ONSTAGE ThiS wEEk
In season, the course St. John’s of this College will be of offering
free concerts Beethoven’s complete piano trios, played by pianist Peter Pesic (long-time musicianin-residence and tutor at the college) and two accomplished student musicians, violinist
Ari Winnick and
cellist Jack Smith IV. The opening recital, at 12:10 p.m. on
Friday, Sept. 10, in the Junior Common Room of the Peterson Student Center on the St. John’s campus (1160 Camino de Cruz Blanca, 984-6000), comprises the first work Beethoven published with an opus number — his E-flat-major Trio, Op. 1, No. 1 — along with a trio movement he wrote in 1784, when he was 13. Sandwiched between Zozobra and Fiesta is a dance-music throwdown in an industrial park on the city’s southwest side. Dubbed Techno Vacation, the party features San Francisco DJ and Auralism Records head Jason Short playing some seriously stripped-down techno. Santa Fe club stalwarts
Feathericci (Paul Groetzinger) and Toast (Paul Senet), among other local DJs, round out this banger. The dance-floor sweat will flow from 10 p.m.
Saturday, Sept. 11, until the early morning at High Mayhem Studios (2811 Siler Lane). Admission to the all-ages show is $10 at the door. On the fringe of music history stands August Klughardt (18471902), who as a conductor championed Wagner and Liszt but as a composer showed more old-fashioned obeisance to Schumann. His works go mostly unheard today — certainly his four operas and five symphonies — but Serenata of Santa Fe revives his
Schilflieder (“Song of the Reeds”) for oboe, viola, and piano in a concert that also includes music by Debussy and Santa Fe composer Ron Strauss. The concert is at 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 12, at the
Scottish Rite Center, 463 Paseo de Peralta. Tickets, none more than $25, are available at the door. Call 989-7988. Singer Paula Eastwood works with the Dave Anderson Quartet on a Stan Getz program at 4 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 12. Playing with Eastwood and saxophonist Anderson on bossa novas and ballads such as “Corcovado” and “The Girl From Ipanema” are pianist Bert Dalton, bassist Jon Gagan, and drummer Cal Haines. The gig takes place at the Santa Fe Center for Spiritual Living, 505 Camino de los Marquez. The $12 tickets are available at the door (cash or check only).
