Thurs., Feb. 21, Tod Brody
Mondavi Center, noon, no cover
As part of the Shinkoskey Noon Concert series, Tod Brody will perform with pianist I-Hui Chen in a program called 19th-Century Sonatas Not for Flute and Piano. Brody and Chen will perform Franz Schubert's Arpeggione Sonata, which has often been performed by cello or viola and piano. The pair will also perform César Franck's Violin Sonata, also not originally composed for flute. When not usurping sonatas meant for other instruments, Brody is the principal flute for California Musical Theatre, San Francisco Chamber Orchestra, San Francisco Contemporary Music Players and Earplay, and he's also a flute instructor and chamber-music coach at UC Davis. 9399 Old Davis Road in Davis, http://music.ucdavis.edu/people/tod-brody.
