Brahms and beyond

The annual Music@Menlo chamber-music festival also announced its new season this week. The theme of the ninth season, which runs July 22 through Aug. 13 in Atherton, Palo Alto and Menlo Park, is "Through Brahms."

Concerts, symposia, master classes and other activities will delve into the music of Johannes Brahms, as well as his influences, contemporaries and his 19th-century musical scene.

The festival's artistic directors, cellist David Finckel and pianist Wu Han, will perform along with a roster of other musicians. Newcomers to Music@Menlo include violinists Yura Lee and Daniel Hope, pianist Lucille Chung and clarinetist David Shifrin.

The four-week Chamber Music Institute for young musicians also runs along with the festival.

For details and ticket information, go to or call the ticket office at 650-331-0202.
