Steinway Artist Natsuki Fukasawa and Igor Veligan, guest principal violinist with the Reno Philharmonic, transport us to France at the turn of the 20th century with sonatas by César Franck and Maurice Ravel.
Belgian-born Franck became an important figure in late 19th-century Paris, working in the same artistic milieu as French Impressionist painters of the day. Ravel was considered an “impressionistic” composer, and his work showcased here coincides with the post-WWI art in the Crocker’s own California Impressionism collection.
Together, these composers form a “French connection,” moving us
musically to another era. Space is limited, and reserving tickets
in advance is recommended. $6 Museum members, $6 Capital Public
Radio members, $10 students/youth, $12 nonmembers. Tickets may be
purchased at crockerartmuseum.org, at the Museum Admission
Desk, or by calling (916) 808-1182. This concert is part of the
Crocker’s monthly Classical Concert series with Prelude Tours
preceding the concert at 1 & 2 p.m.
