An Afternoon in ParisConcerts & Performances
Witness the City of Lights through the lens of its humorists, Romantics and modernists. From the regal march of lions to the swans graceful glides and the aquariums shimmering waters, Camille Saint-Sans Carnival whimsically illustrates the animal kingdom. Considered a breath of fresh air, Francis Poulencs Trio evokes past masters with tongue in cheek in this showpiece for double reeds. Metropolitan Opera soprano Michelle Bradley lends her rich and vibrant voice to the anguished unrequited love of Ernest Chaussons Perpetual Song and the glowing beauty of Andr Caplets The Prayers, written on the front lines of battle.
