Join Mezzo-Soprano Michelle Mitsui and Pianist Thomas Zeman in an escape from the hectic pace of the modern world with music of the three greatest French composers of a century ago. Debussy's "Trois Ballades de François Villon" include a rebuke of the poet's mistress, a poignant prayer to the Virgin Mary, and a tongue-twisting salute to the gossiping ladies of Paris. Fauré's "Chanson d'Ève" details the creation of the world and mankind's fall from grace. Ravel's "Chants Populaires" offer an entertaining close to the program including a poem by Robert Burns, and Spanish, French, Italian and Hebrew folk songs.
