Camera Lucida is a chamber music collaboration between four musicians with diverse backgrounds. Camera Lucida is a unique project matching masterpieces of the chamber music repertoire with a group of world-class instrumentalists who happen to call San Diego home.

Under the artistic directorship of UC San Diego professor and cellist Charles Curtis and anchored by regular featured performances by San Diego Symphony Concertmaster Jeff Thayer, Formosa Quartet violist and USC professor Che-Yen Chen, concert pianist Reiko Uchida, UC San Diego performance faculty and occasional guests, Camera Lucida has established a tradition of challenging, musically ambitious programs performed with the assurance of an established ensemble, with the added flexibility of changing instrumentation and guests from the international chamber music world.

Beethoven, String Quartet "Rasumovsky" in F major, Opus 59 Nr. 1
Brahms, Piano Quartet in g minor, Opus 25

No late seating.

PLEASE NOTE: As an experimental and new music department, much of our music is very intimate and quiet, for this reason, we request that students preparing concert reports refrain from writing or rustling papers during concerts.  We also respect the artistry of our musicians and adhere to a strict policy of NO LATE SEATING.  Guests arriving late may be turned away or will be asked to enter between pieces.
