Berkeley Symphony & Friends, the chamber music series on four Sundays at the Piedmont Center for the Arts, will dedicate this Sunday's 5 pm concert--featuring former San Francisco Symphony Concertmaster Stuart Canin on violin, pianist Janet Guggenheim and cellist Jonah Kim--to the memory of Robert Commanday, former Chronicle music critic and founder of the SFCV--San Francisco Classical Voice--website, often called the dean of Northern California performing arts critics. Commanday died September 3 at his Oakland home, age 93.  

The program will feature Stravinsky's Duo Concerte, Prokoviev's Violin Sonata No. 2 in D Major and Arensky's Piano trio No. 1.
