This concert offers moments of excitement as well as introspection. Featuring the celebrated quartets of Ravel and Debussy, two French composers who were influenced by the many cultural and social movements at the turn of the 20th century. The two composers were great friends and colleagues who were inspired by one another, and represent the ethos of music-making that we strive for at ACMF. Also featured in the spirit of friendship is the lyrical work for two cellos “As one who loves poetry” by American composer, Sarah Gibson.
