Civic at South Shore Cultural Center: Parisian Perspectives

Feb 12, 2023
Ken-David Masur


Premiered in Belle-Époque Paris, Franck’s Symphony in D Minor was a pioneering fusion of French brilliance and Germanic grandeur. Ravel memorialized friends who died in World War I while paying tribute to the French music of centuries past with Le tombeau de Couperin, while Lili Boulanger composed the exquisite and melancholy Sad Evening shortly before her own death at age 24.
