Fred Adler makes his living as an Emergency Medicine physician, but he is active in the Bay Area chamber music scene as both a composer and a pianist.
... the Community Music Center (CMC) will host a concert that will feature both his recent chamber music compositions and works from the twentieth century that reflect the influences of his Viennese and Argentine roots.
He will be joined by an ensemble of some of the leading performers of chamber music in the Bay Area.
The Adler compositions that will be presented on the program will include a piano trio, a piano sonata, songs on texts by both Federico García Lorca and James Joyce, and a piece for solo clarinet.
