2015-2016 Concert Season

Season Sponsor: SAGE Publications

CAMA’s International Series at The Granada Theatre’s 97th Season features a plethora of today’s most celebrated artists on the international music scene. Opening the season in October will be the most widely recognized pianist on the planet, Lang Lang. Violinist Pinchas Zukerman will lead Britain’s powerful Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in January, while Joshua Bell will return with the refined Academy of St Martin in the Fields from London in March. Canada’s vaunted Montréal Symphony Orchestra returns to Santa Barbara after a 27-year absence under the direction of distinguished conductor Kent Nagano and featuring young Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov, who is emerging as one of the brightest names of the next generation of pianists. And the Los Angeles Philharmonic makes its annual visit to Santa Barbara with brilliant young Czech maestro Jakub Hrůša as guest conductor and CAMA favorite Jean-Yves Thibaudet on piano.

MASTERSERIES at the Lobero
2015-2016 Concert Season

Season Sponsor: Esperia Foundation

Music for the Ages

Masterseries at the Lobero’s 2015-2016 Season will begin in October with a return performance by the great pianist Sir András Schiff, who will play the final sonatas of Mozart, Haydn, Beethoven and Schubert. Early music specialist Jordi Savall will offer a program of English and Celtic music from the 17th through 19th centuries, and French pianist Jean-Efflam Bavouzet will perform an encore recital following his riveting performance last season at The Granada with the London Philharmonic. Masterseries’ finale will be the Santa Barbara debut performance by the celebrated Latvian-born cellist Mischa Maisky, the only cellist in the world to have studied with both legendary masters Mstislav Rostropovich and Gregor Piatigorsky.
