About This Performance

Cellist Peter Stumpf, of the Johannes Quartet and former principal of the Los Angeles Philharmonic, takes us on a uniquely expressive musical journey with another longtime Society favorite, pianist Cynthia Raim. Their all-French program ranges from the raw emotion of Debussy’s Cello Sonata to a pair of charming works by Fauré before concluding with Poulenc’s Cello Sonata, a lush, Romantic work described as “Mozart meets Stravinsky—in a Paris cabaret.”

Debussy: Cello Sonata in D Minor
Saint-Saëns: Cello Sonata in C Minor, Op. 32
Fauré: Sicilienne, Op. 78
Fauré: Romance, Op. 69
Poulenc: Cello Sonata
