April Night!  
this coming Monday, the 9th @ 8 p.m. 
Music & Arts in the Studio  
@ Alexey Steele Grand Atelier 
Special thanks to our unwavering founding patron
Rand Resources, LLC.      
Come to Classical Underground and add years to your life!  A study released last week claimed that regularly attending concerts increased feelings of well-being more than yoga, more than walking a dog, and could add as many as nine years to your life!  Ok, it was sponsored by a London rock concert venue (nothing was mentioned about the effects on your hearing), but we believe it!  And we guarantee that our April program will be life-enhancing.
First up, two trios, two centuries apart for piano, clarinet and bassoon, featuring Nadia Shpachenko on piano, Edgar Lopez on clarinet, and Judith Farmer, bassoon.  Mozart's "Kegelstatt" trio was originally composed for piano, clarinet and viola but is often transcribed for other combinations, as we will hear at CU.  230 years later, Gernot Wolfgang composed WINDOWS for exactly this relatively rare combination.
It is always a delight to welcome LA Philharmonic violinist Mark Kashper and pianist Meriette Saglie, returning to perform Antonin Dvorak's Romantic Pieces, Op. 75.
    Mark Kashper

 We also welcome the return of young USC violinist Leonard Chong, who will play the Fantaisie Brilliante on themes from Gounod's "Faust," Op. 20, by 19th-century violin virtuoso Henri Wieniawski.
And pianist Danny Holt brings an intriguing mini-program by relatives of great composers, starting with the great pianist Clara Schumann's Op. 20 variations on a theme by her husband Robert.  Then a taste of the talents of Mozarts Senior and Junior:  a sonata by Leopold, and a Polonaise by Franz Xaver, respectively father and son of Wolfgang Amadeus.

 Natalia Fabia
"Ravenous" "96 x 60"

Natalia Fabia is a uniquely authentic and genuine LA voice.
Much like herself, her characters, mostly women, are full of vigorous, assertive and unapologetic presence, perfectly comfortable in their unabashed and empowering sexiness.  She's got her theme, her purpose and her love of messing with paints.  Her work is a dazzling product of her own world, both truthful and imagined.

While finding her theme early on and receiving a fair share of recognition, Natalia did not end up simply recirculating it.  She  proved to be driven to constantly improve and expand her technical vocabulary.  Her deepened attention to alla prima and live painting brought a new level of expressive bravura to her work.

Natalia has been featured in Juxtapoz, New York Arts magazine, Hi Fructose, Art Ltd., and Angeleno Magazine. She was featured in LA Weekly's 2010 People Issue as one of "LA's 100" most fascinating people.

We are happy to welcome as our CU showcase this unique, dedicated and constantly growing artist.

 As always - bring your spirits, food and drink for you and your friends to enjoy.
