Victoria Martino Lecture Series

Victoria Martino is currently presenting a most interesting lecture series on Scandinavian culture at the Athenaeum in La Jolla. Martino is a noted solo violinist and chamber orchestra musician who has held positions with leading ensembles in Europe and the U.S., including serving as associate director of the Capella Academica Wien in Vienna. Her lecture series covers music, art, and literature during the Danish Golden Age, celebrating in particular Denmark’s leading composer, Niels Gade, who greatly influenced not only his native country but all of Scandinavia, including Norway’s Edvard Grieg. The series includes live music performances and is highly recommended.
The initial lecture has already been presented, but four remain that can be attended individually. They will be held at the Athenaeum on the following Mondays: September 25, October 2, October 9, and October 16 at 7:30 p.m. Tickets for each lecture are $25.00 for non-members of the Athenaeum. Please consult the Athenaeum’s web site for more detailed information. (This website’s webmaster came up with this link on a Google search for the Athenaeum’s web site.)
Several members of Valhall had the pleasure of recently attending a concert by Victoria Martino at the Athenaeum. Skillfully accompanied by pianist James Lent, she performed most impressively on the violin all three of Edvard Grieg’s sonatas for violin and piano. It was a memorable evening.
