Three Chances To Hear Personal Expressions With Camerata San Antonio

Camerata SA

Kerrville, Boerne and San Antonio host Camerata SA concerts this weekend

Personal Expressions will feature Anastasia Storer and Matthew Zerweck, violins; Emily Freudigman, viola; and Ken Freudigman, cello. These Camerata San Antonio musicians play together in chamber music as well as at the San Antonio Symphony.

Ken says that their familiarity with one another makes all the difference! "It builds upon itself. The more that you work together, the more you understand the musical personalities of the people you are working with. After a while, it is almost like a marriage." [Editor's note, Ken is married to Emily.]

"The Quartet by Smetana, it is really almost autobiographical in nature. The music is undeniably Smetana, but where it becomes very personable is in the finale, and expresses an affliction, tinnitus."
