Saul Bitran, Cuarteto Latinoamericano violinist and newest member of the Boston Conservatory at Berklee violin faculty, joins forces with pianist Sally Pinkas in a program titled From Paris, Con Amor, featuring works by Latin American and French masters Gabriel Fauré, Manuel M. Ponce, Maurice Ravel, Silvestre Revueltas, and Heitor Villa-Lobos.

During the 20th century, numerous Latin American composers, writers, and painters settled in Paris in order to further their studies and immerse themselves in French culture. Spending time in Paris came to be seen as providing a required final validation for an already well-established Latin American artist. Naturally, the degree to which French traits filtered through to the music of these visiting artists was unique to each particular composer or composition, and in some cases evolved in reverse, through a French composer’s sojourn in Latin America. 

Andrew Mark, artistic director
