Ensemble Variances

Led by artistic director and “master of perpetual movement” (Le Figaro) Thierry Pécou, Ensemble Variances calls on their French roots for an evening of music in motion arranged for small forces: violin, cello, clarinet, piano, saxophone and flute. They feature Ravel, Milhaud, Debussy’s intimately-layered Prélude à l’après-midi d’un faune, and Stravinsky’s narrative piece L’Histoire du soldat (The Soldier’s Tale).
