The powerful and sensual sculpture of Auguste Rodin inspires this concert by Beau Chant, a local duo of accomplished classical vocalists. Five of the sculptor’s masterworks are highlighted with music composed by Rodin’s contemporaries, including Rossini, Mendelssohn, Brahms, Liszt, and Berlioz. The gorgeous and romantic melodies of these 19th-century musical giants are the perfect accompaniment to the transcendent art of Rodin.
