Impressions Of Debussy And Ravel
KRISTIN LEE, VIOLIN; NICHOLAS CANELLAKIS, CELLO; MICHAEL BROWN, PIANO
Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel were mutual admirers and rivals who resided on opposite sides of the early 20th-century French musical spectrum. Debussy, the dreamy symbolist, conjured mesmerizing sonic landscapes, while Ravel, the glittering perfectionist, explored kaleidoscopically colorful musical worlds.
Three of today’s most charismatic young musicians, violinist Kristin Lee, cellist Nicholas Canellakis, and pianist Michael Brown will perform glittering musical highlights from La Belle Époche.

“Hamelin is that Superpianoman. No scale is too quick, no fingering too contorted, no counterpoint too dense to deter him. His recital was a heroic journey, and he was given a hero’s celebration by the audience.” – Christian Hertzog, San Diego Union Tribune
