Renée Fleming and Susan Graham, two of the world's most foremost stars of opera, join together at Walt Disney Concert Hall for a recital of French duets, tonight, January 19, at 8 pm. Accompanied by pianist Bradley Moore, the two powerhouse vocalists take the audience on a comprehensive survey of French song literature from the 19th century, featuring eight composers ranging from the arch-Romantic Hector Berlioz to the late-century Reynaldo Hahn and André Messager, and including rarely performed French duet literature from Debussy and Fauré. This LA Phil Colburn Celebrity Recital event is presented in partnership with the LA Opera.
