A rare opportunity to hear Ensemble Cairn, one of the world's most exciting new music ensembles from Paris. Argento and Cairn will join forces to perform works by Gérard Pesson, Erin Gee and Franck Bedrossian, and brand new violin concertos by French composer Jérôme Combier and Argento Artistic Director Michel Galante, with French-American violinist Elissa Cassini.

Argento and Cairn will perform the same program in Paris on November 20.

This project is made possible by generous funding from the government of France via the French-American Cultural Exchange.
