Our program for the evening
- Francesca McNeeley and Eva Aronian will perform works by Maurice Ravel, who in the 1920s and 1930s was internationally regarded as France's greatest living composer.
- Giovanna Confalone and Velleda Miragias will present Mélanie (Mel) Bonis’ Sonata in F Major, opus 67 for cello and piano, which is but one of over 300 works in Bonis’ oeuvre. Written in Paris, 1905, the sonata is a fine example of the high caliber chamber music produced by Bonis at the fin du siècle. Mel Bonis (1858-1937) was one of the few women of her time granted admission to the prestigious Conservatoire de Paris.
- Clemens Teufel and Nathan Rodriguez will close the evening with a sumptuous opera recital, featuring pieces from Bizet.
An intermission of ten minutes will be observed after each performance, during which complimentary refreshments will be available. The event will start no later than 7:10 PM.Thank you for your understanding.
