Special guest Marc-André Hamelin, a pianist “known for a technical finesse that borders on the supernatural” (The Seattle Times), headlines the final program on Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra’s popular Chamber Series. He performs Nadia Boulanger’s post-impressionist Three Pieces for Cello and Piano, and Franck’s expressive Piano Quintet in F minor, complementing Leclair’s innovative Sonata for Two Violins in E minor, Op. 3, No. 5, and Debussy’s dream-like Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp. All four composers on the program are united by their contributions to the multi-generational musical pedagogy and landscape of France. They each exemplify the myriad ways in which our lives are continually shaped by the people and circumstances around us.
LECLAIR, Sonata for Two Violins in E minor, Op. 3, No. 5
BOULANGER, Three Pieces for Cello and Piano
DEBUSSY, Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp
FRANCK, Piano Quintet in F minor
