Mak Grgic, guitar & Jay Campbell, cello


The Eagle Rock Festival's celebration of contemporary American chamber music continues with a gifted young guitarist partnered with a superb young cellist, performing under the gracefully arched, high-ceilinged great room of a former Carnegie Library. The program intermingles the World Premiere of works by Toby Twining and Christian Carey with J. S. Bach’s monumental Chaconne (transcribed for guitar) and his Suite No. 5 (BWV 1011 for cello, BWV 995 for lute). "Grgic is a guiratrist to keep an eye on" (Washington Post), with an international reputation as a rising artist “with an undoubtedly luminous career ahead of him” who possesses “an immense capability for developing the melodic material with an uncanny and profound insight” (Il Messaggero). And the wildly virtuosic Jay Campbell has wowed audiences at Alice Tully Hall and Carnegie Hall, where his playing has been lauded for conveying “every nuance” (New York Times).

Eagle Rock Festival: An afternoon celebrating contemporary American chamber music awaits you in “L.A.’s hometown” — including the opportunity to attend two Chamber Music in Historic Sites concerts (purchased separately or as a 2 concert series). Explore this unique and vibrant pocket of L.A. — concerts with 3 World Premieres, receptions, wine tastings, historic photo exhibits, and walking tours — all this when The Da Camera Society lands in Eagle Rock! All concerts ca. 70 minutes each. Festival packet, with tours and schedule of activities, mailed prior to the concert.

This concert and festival are made possible in part by a generous grant from the Kenneth T. and Eileen L. Norris Foundation.
