Germaine Tailleferre was a French composer and the only female member of the group of composers known as Les Six. Fellow Les Six member Darius Milhaud remarked with affectionate awe, the constantly energetic Tailleferre “was always 20 years old.” This is epitomized in her piano trio which was originally written in 1916/17 when she was only 24 and revised 60 years later! The program opens with a duo by the Czech composer Martinu, written while he was living in Paris. Franck’s sonata for violin and piano is a staple of the violin repertoire. The evening in Paris rounds out with a composer who was first presented to the Court of Versailles at age 7, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, in a performance of his G Minor Piano Quartet.


Turina’s piano quartet epitomizes Spanish music of this time. The audience will also be treated to Spanish influenced virtuosity in Boccherini’s Fandango Quintet for Guitar and Strings and Sarasate’s Navarra featuring Ascent faculty, and two of the most decorated violinists performing and teaching in the US, Ilya Kaler and Judith Ingolfsson.
