Additional Description:

In 1987, renowned virtuoso violinist János Négyesy established a series of Chamber Music concerts called the “Soirée for Music Lovers.” These programs were intended to be a musical counterpoint to the experimental music that characterized the music department at the University of California, where Professor Négyesy was a long-time faculty member. The quarterly concerts, featuring chamber music from the 18th, 19th and 20th centuries, grew to be a popular and elegant part of the musical life of San Diego. The tradition continues this year on Wednesday, February 14th, at the Conrad Prebys Concert Hall on UCSD campus. Päivikki Nykter, the late Professor Négyesy’s wife, musical partner and a featured performer in every previous Soirée, has taken up the mantle in presenting a program worthy of the Négyesy legacy.
