Peninsula Daily News

QUILCENE — The Olympic Music Festival presents the 10th weekend of its 31st season with violinist Tien-Hsin Cindy Wu, violist Alan Iglitzin, cellist Matthew Zalkind and pianist Julio Elizalde.

The artists will perform Sonata in G minor for Violin and Piano (“Devil's Trill” arr. Fritz Kreisler) by Giuseppe Tartini; Sonata in D minor for Cello and Piano, Op. 40, by Dmitri Shostakovich; and Piano Quartet No. 2 in A major, Op. 26, by Johannes Brahms.

“The program showcases three extreme contrasts in chamber music,” said Julio Elizalde, co-artistic director of the festival.

Wu, who returned for her third season at the Festival, has appeared as a soloist with the Russian State Symphony Orchestra and National Symphony Orchestra of Taiwan, among others.

Zalkind was the first-prize winner of the 2012 Washington International Competition and won distinction as top-ranked American in the 2011 Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow.

The Olympic Music Festival is located on a 55-acre farm 18 miles south of Port Townsend.

Patrons can choose to sit inside the barn or outside on the lawn where the concert is broadcast beginning 2 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.

Ticket prices range from $18 to $33 and may be purchased by phone at 360-732-4800 or online at www.olympicmusicfestival.org.
