Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra's virtuosic musicians serve as musical tour guides for In Focus, the Orchestra's newest chamber music series curated by Concertmaster Margaret Batjer, which concludes its inaugural season with special guest Robert Thies, piano, and Principal Oboe Claire Brazeau, joining Batjer and LACO musicians at Rothenberg Hall, The Huntington in San Marino. The repertoire includes works by Mozart, Brahms and spouses Clara and Robert Schumann, featuring Mozart's virtuosic Oboe Quartet, noted for its stratospheric range; Clara Schumann’s Romances for Violin and Piano, one of her final works; Robert Schumann’s Romances for Oboe and Piano, his only composition for oboe; and Brahms’s Piano Quartet No. 3, considered an homage to his lifelong friend and romantic interest Clara Schumann. Thies, Brazeau and Batjer are joined by LACO artists Principal Violin II Josefina Vergara, Violin Katia Popov, Associate Principal Viola Victoria Miskolczy and Associate Principal Cello Armen Ksajikian. NPR’s Renee Montagne moderates a short discussion at the conclusion of the program. In Focus provides insights into the quintessence of some of the great chamber music repertoire through the lens of LACO’s artists in an intimate setting. During LACO's 50th anniversary 2017-18 season, In Focus highlights the remarkable chamber works of Mozart and Brahms. To purchase tickets, go to
