June 1

The Farallon Quintet
Pianist Jon Nakamatsu

The Farallon Quintet, founded in the summer of 2012, is a dynamic Bay Area ensemble and the only professional chamber music group focused exclusively on the clarinet quintet string quartet plus clarinet repertoire. In addition to playing the classics, the quintet seeks to perform rarely heard works, innovative arrangements, and new music by living composers.

American pianist Jon Nakamatsu continues to draw unanimous praise as a true aristocrat of the keyboard, whose playing combines elegance, clarity, and electrifying power. Mr. Nakamatsu has performed widely in North and South America, Europe, and the Far East, collaborating with such conductors as James Conlon, Marek Janowski, Raymond Leppard, Stanislaw Skrowaczewski, Osmo Vänskä and Hans Vonk. He also performed at a White House concert hosted by President and Mrs. Clinton.  Jon Nakamatsu is the Gold Medalist of the Tenth Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.
