Concert

Paris 1900, Classical and Modern

Featuring ISA Trio: Jacques Israelievitch (violin), Benjamin Smith (piano) and Jihyun Ahn (cello).

ISA trio revisits the Belle Époque, a period following the Great Depression from 1880 and ending when World War I began in 1914. This period was characterized by social, economic, technological and political improvements. It is, at least, the idyllic vision in thinking in contrast to the horrors of World War I. In retrospect, the Belle Époque was named, shading off upheavals, inconsistencies and challenges of a period that produced the twentieth century.
