Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center posing with their instruments.

Experience the grace, wit, and charm of French music. The program includes early works by Saint-Saëns and Fauré that recreate the elegant atmosphere of 19th century Parisian salons. Additionally, 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.

Pre-performance talk in Ramsey Concert Hall at 6:45 pm (free admission).
