Gérard Caussé, Nicholas Angelich, and Karine Deshayes play Brahms and Shostakovich Concert behind closed doors

About

You won't want to miss this tremendous triple bill: Gérard Caussé, Nicholas Angelich, and Karine Deshayes in an evening of glorious chamber music, live from behind the closed doors of the stunning Fondation Singer-Polignac. Angelich's piano will gracefully blend with the warm timbre of Caussé's viola and Deshayes's gorgeous mezzo-soprano voice, during a program that will kick off in high Romantic style with two works by Brahms. The inimitable Caussé-Angelich duet will then perform Shostakovich’s dark and dramatic Viola Sonata, the last work he ever composed.
