Concert of Toulouse-Lautrec’s Paris–Feb 8, 2015 in Sacramento CA

The music of Toulouse-Lautrec’s Paris comes to life with a special performance by the San Francisco Munich Trio featuring Rebecca Rust (cello), Friedrich Edelmann (bassoon), and Dmitriy Cogan (piano). A combination of popular compositions (Frédéric Chopin) and lesser known compositions by Heitor Villa-Lobos, Alexandre Tansman and Georges Enesco will transport you back to Paris at the turn of the 20th century as an enhancement of the exhibition “Toulouse-Lautrec and La Vie Moderne, Paris 1880-1910”. Rostropovich-student Rebecca Rust and her husband, Friedrich Edelmann, former principal bassoonist of the Munich Philharmonic Orchestra for 27 years, together with the Russian born pianist Dmitriy Cogan will demonstrate with their complex and sublime performance this unique time period, when Paris was the cultural center of the world.
