Death Valley Junction, CA: Population, 3; Amenities: a café, a hotel, and the still-active Amargosa Opera House. Guest composer Missy Mazzoli’s duo is dedicated to Marta Beckett (1924-2017), the actress who kept the Amargosa up and running as long as she lived. Mazzoli’s quartet is paired with Ravel’s duo Sonata, dedicated to the memory of Debussy whose death had recently shaken the musical world of France. The second half journeys through Shostakovich’s Trio, a work of extremes composed in the midst of World War II.
