    2:30 pm March 20, 2016

    A summit meeting between some of the leading 19th-century composers of France and Russia, this concert will unite the refined elegance of Fauré with the stronger accents of two members of the ‟Mighty Handful” of St. Petersburg.  The alliance is cemented by the orchestration of Mussorgsky’s piano work Pictures at an Exhibition, made by Maurice Ravel in Paris.
