GREAT BARRINGTON -- Late 19th- and early 20th century Paris provides the setting for Close Encounters With Music's "The French Connection."
The free concert will be streamed live from the stage of a no-audience-present Mahaiwe Performing Arts Center Sunday evening at 7:30. The performance can be accessed via the Mahaiwe website -- mahaiwe.org.
Rescheduled from spring, the program features music by Faure (Piano Quartet No. 1); Debussy (Sonate, for cello); Saint Saens (Rondo Capriccioso); and Lili Boulanger ("D'un matin de printemps").
Performing are Irina Muresanu, violin; Dov Scheindlin, viola; Mikael Darmanie, piano; and cellist Yehuda Hanai, CEWM's founding artistic director, who will give a brief talk about this noteworthy period of creativity in French music and art. There also will be an "Afterglow" discussion with the musicians.
