Dear Franchomme Fans:
I’ll be performing music from The Franchomme Project CD in Paris with Hélène Jeanney on September 4th. The most renowned French cellist of the 19th century, Auguste Franchomme was the dear friend and preferred musical partner of Chopin, and a fine composer himself. We’ll perform works found in the Bibliothèque Nationale de France that have been out of print and rarely (if ever) played in Paris since Franchomme’s death, including two works not on our album. Three direct descendants of Franchomme will be present at the concert. Admission by donation, pay what you wish.
Venue, Contact, Time:
The American Cathedral in Paris, 23 avenue George V, 75008 Paris (depicted in the painting above from 1890)
Phone: 06 72 01 31 61
September 4th, 2016, 4 pm- 450 pm, no intermission.
located in the 8th arrondissement in central Paris: closest metro stations are Alma-Marceau and George V.

If you are in Paris on Sept. 4th, we hope to see you!
