French Enchantment 

Experience 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 19-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.

Wu Han, Piano / Paul Huang, Violin / Matthew Lipman, Viola / Clive Greensmith, Cello

SAINT-SAËNS Trio No. 1 in F major for Piano, Violin, and Cello, Op. 18 (1864)
RAVEL Sonata for Violin and Cello (1920-22)
FAURÉ Quartet No. 1 in C minor for Piano, Violin, Viola, and Cello, Op. 15 (1876-79)

Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, celebrating their 50th season, is committed to bringing audiences the finest performances of an extraordinary body of repertoire, dating as far back as the Renaissance and continuing through the centuries to the greatest works of our time.
