Society for the Performing Arts presents Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center
The Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center will present a concert featuring the grace, wit, and charm of French music. The program begins and ends with early works by Saint-Saëns and Fauré that recreate the elegant atmosphere of 19th-century Parisian salons. In between, the Ravel sonata, written soon after World War I, uses just two string instruments to produce a composition of unique, austere beauty. These three inimitable works capture the essence of pure melody in its most delightfully fundamental form.
Performers include Wu Han, piano; Paul Huang, violin; Matthew Lipman, viola; and Clive Greensmith, cello.
