Soprano Julia Bullock has been called "ravishingly visceral" by The New York Times

From César Franck’s musical wedding gift for Eugène Ysaÿe to Ravel’s romantic Greek melodies, love and courtship take center stage in this delightful program. A collection of Petrarch’s timeless love sonnets will be brought to electrifying life in a new work of composer Jonathan Berger, while Dvořák’s folk-infused D major piano quartet will bring the evening to a thrilling conclusion.

Join us for a pre-concert composer chat with Jonathan Berger at 4:00 PM in the Rose Studio, free for ticket holders.
