Southwest Chamber Music is wrapping up its summer season with two nights of music at the Huntington. On the agenda are works by Mozart, Schubert, Brahms, as well as one piece by a contemporary American composer, Alexandra du Bois: L’apothéose d’un rêve, which etymological intuition (and Google) tells me means “the culmination of a dream.” At 30 (her birthday is today!) her resume is already quite substantial, as of course are those of Wolfgang, Franz, and Johannes. Southwest Chamber Music has been playing her stuff all summer long, including three shows in Vietnam as part of the Ascending Dragon Music Festival & Cultural Exchange.
