Thrills & Chills
French color, American optimism, British wit and German drama combine to create a program at once thrilling to the ears and riveting to the soul. Ravel’s iconic water work, Jeux d’eau, begins a program which includes reflective and dynamic French works by Poulenc and Fauré; Lukas Foss’s lively cello & piano Capriccio; Britten’s humorous and bold violin suite; and Beethoven’s Shakespeare-inspired “Ghost” trio, a game-changer in the chamber music landscape.
