Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center, Saint-Saëns and Fauré

Sunday February 25, 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm

Friends and colleagues across generations, the pair of composers on this program advanced the cause and rich aesthetic of French music, laying the groundwork for the age of Impressionism with irresistible, colorful soundscapes.

Boasting the expert skills of French-trained composers of their era, Fauré and Saint-Saëns excelled in every genre they touched, as illustrated by this program’s variety of vocal and instrumental timbres.
