John Gallup Posted February 24, 2022 Share Posted February 24, 2022 The Maybeck Studio is a large residence at 1537 Euclid Avenue in Berkeley,,, ...built in 1914 by renowned Arts and Crafts architect Bernard Maybeck. It has been used as a concert space for more than 100 years, and is renowned for its acoustics, thought to be enhanced by the unfinished old-growth redwood paneling in the performance room (and the rest of the house, I think), which seats about 40 people. This website from when it was last for sale has many other wonderful pictures (and shows you could have snapped it up for a mere $1.85M ten years ago). Anyway, music: Tidal lists a whole series of piano concerts that have been recorded there, and they do sound very nice to my ear. I'm a particular fan of Jessica Williams' jazz piano (as I may have mentioned here before) but the Kenny Baron and Fred Hirsch pieces are very nice too. If you're a woodworker it's nice just to imagine being among beautiful slices of those old trees listening to good music. I've signed up to be notified of future events and may actually go, pandemic and time permitting. 1 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
