“Artistic Director François Chouchan, with his keen sense of programming and recruitment of inspired artists, has created a real gem among the Los Angeles chamber music experiences.”
– Theodore Bell, Culture Spot LA
Le Salon De Musiques continues its 2013-14 season on Jan. 12 at 4 p.m. with a special “duo recital” for cello and piano with the music of Leon Boellmann’s “Sonata op 40 in A minor.” The performance, directed by founding artistic director François Chouchan with co-artistic director John Walz, will also feature the “Sonata for Cello and Piano op 143” by Francis Poulenc, and the “Sonata for Cello and Piano n.1 H 277 by S.Martinu.”
“I am thrilled that Le Salon de Musiques will be hosting the Leon Boellmann Cello Sonata,” Chouchan said. “Leon Boellmann is such a wonderful French composer but almost forgotten. This beautiful piece, which reminds me of Cesar Franck, is so lyrical and so emotional!”
Le Salon de Musiques is a unique musical experience unlike none other in Los Angeles. By removing the stage and putting the artists next to the audience, each performance is a very personal and intimate experience. The concert is being performed on the fifth floor of the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion. An informal Q&A with the artists will follow the performance and a gourmet buffet dinner provided by Patina with French champagne being served. Tickets are $65 (includes dinner and drinks).
