Music Among Friends

Music Among Friends celebrates the ties between our chamber ensemble and the lively community of local composers who have generously shared their wonderful music with us. 16 works are by Bay Area composers, 5 are SFCA-commissioned world premieres, and several others have never before been commercially recorded.

With this collection, chosen from live performances, we share the intimacy of our concerts with old and new friends around the world.
