Savannah Music Festival LIVE 810 – Vive la France – Part Two
In the late 19th century, Paris was an incredibly vibrant musical city. Alongside its nearly unrivaled musical scene, composers such as Saint-Saëns, Franck, Massenet, Faure, Debussy and Ravel had developed a veritable renaissance of French music. In this second part of a two-hour program featuring chamber music performances from the 2015 Savannah Music Festival, we listen to pianist Stephen Hough play Debussy and pianist Simon Crawford Phillips, violist Carla Maria Rodrigues, violinist Lorenza Boranni and cellist Eric Kim performing Saint-Saëns’ Piano Quartet No. 2 in B-flat Major, Opus 41 at the Trinity United Methodist Church on Telfair Square.
