MusiKaravan: A Classical Roadtrip with Delirium Musicum

May 07 - 09

Delirium Musicum pulls up to The Wallis in its whimsical 1971 red VW bus, Boris. MusiKaravan, the ensemble’s COVID-era “road show,” took two violinists from Delirium Musicum, Artistic Director Etienne Gara and YuEun Kim, on a six-month musical odyssey up and down the West Coast, performing socially-distanced concerts for farm workers, winemakers, random passersby, and even the occasional ostrich!

For their Sorting Room engagement, Gara and Kim perform Charlie Chaplin’s “Smile,” featured in the soundtrack for his groundbreaking 1936 film Modern Times and inspired by Puccini’s Tosca; Brahms’ lively Hungarian Dance No. 5; Chopin’s poignant Nocturne, Op. 9 No. 2; and the second movement of Prokofiev’s Sonata for 2 violins in C major. The violinists are joined by bassist Ryan Baird for Waltz No. 2 from Shostakovich’s Jazz Suite; and Monti’s fiery Czardas. Delirium Musicum, hailed for its “ferocious and rhythmically mesmerizing” performances (San Francisco Classical Voice), finds inspiration in the captivating artistic mosaic of Los Angeles, where the ensemble is based.

This performance is made possible by generous support from Wendy and Ken Ruby.
