The brilliant Konstantin Shamray will sweep you off your feet with the music of Paris by moonlight, from Debussy's suite Bergamasque (Claire de Lune) to Ravel's nostalgic La Valse; no emotion unexplored, no heart unmoved. Join us for an unforgettable evening in Paris.

3 September: Bohemian Rhapsody
Ensemble Liaison is internationally acclaimed for its spell-binding performances, innovative programs and brilliant collaborations with leading artists. Bohemian Rhapsody is a journey through music for the free soul, a setlist of Ensemble Liaison's favourites—from Ravel's spiritual Kaddish and Brahms' majestic trio to Gershwin's playful Porgy and Bess to Kats-Chernin's Russian rag - and of course, some spicy Klezmer!
