Arts in the Afternoon: Belgian Chocolates

Jun 10, 2020


In this case, it’s musical chocolates, not the renowned sweets, but the place of origin is the same, as is the delicious nature of the product. This program features the 19th century Belgian composers Henri Vieuxtemps and César Franck, as represented by their music for viola and piano. As we’ll find, even with only two players (violist Phillip Stevens and pianist Hsiao-Ling Lin), the results can be just as rich and delectable as those famed Belgian chocolates. Music historian Betsy Schwarm narrates the concert.
