The Neskowin Chamber Music series will continue its 25th anniversary season with a performance from the Mandelring Quartett this Sunday, March 17, at Camp Winema.
Hailing from the wine country of Germany, the group has made a name for itself throughout the past 30 years, performing concerts from Vienna, London and Madrid to New York, Los Angeles and Vancouver.
The group features siblings Nanette Schmidt and Sebastian Schmidt on violin, with Bernhard Schmidt on cello; joined by violist Andreas Willwohl.
Since 2010, the quartet has presented a regular concert series in the Chamber Music Hall of the Berlin Philharmonic and performs each year at an annual festival in the Schmidts’ home town of Neustadt-on-the Weinstrasse (the Wine Road).
Along with their many live performances, the Mandelring Quartett has made a number of CD recordings. Their recording of the complete quartets of Shostakovich attracted particular attention and came to be known as the benchmark recording of these works. Their recording of Mendelssohn’s chamber music for strings was also widely acclaimed. Their current project is a complete recording of all the string chamber music of Brahms.
Sunday’s concert will begin at 3 pm in the chapel at Camp Winema, three miles north of Neskowin, just off Highway 101.
Tickets, $25, area available at the door. For more information, call 503-965-6499 or go to www.neskowinchambermusic.org.
