Chamber Accord “A Celebration of French Music”

                                              Nov. 3, 2016 at 7:30 PM, Bay Village at Sarasota


This varied program of music from the Baroque Era to the 20th Century will present our four musicians in different combinations. Pianist Gabrielius Alekna will perform solo works by Debussy including Clair de Lune and L’Isle Joyeuse.   Violinist Sean O’Neil will be featured in St. Saens’ dazzling Introduction and Rondo for violin and piano.  Sean O’Neil, Shawn Snider, and I will play some charming character pieces by Couperin that Bob Delfausse arranged for string trio.   The concert will open with  Delibe’s delightful “Flower Duet” from Lakme (also arranged by Bob Delfausse) and will culminate with Faure’s Piano Quartet No.1.  This monumental work was written during the end of a tempestuous relationship between Marianne Viardot (daughter of the singer Pauline Viardot) and Faure.
