    A three-century–long French connection defines this program. Charpentier’s Suite confirms his reputation as one of the master melodists of the 17th century. Debussy’s String Quartet shimmers with color and beguiles with rhythmic and harmonic invention. Based on the tragic life of French sculptor Camille Claudel, Jake Heggie’s poignant song cycle is a tour de force for both singer and quartet. Heggie is also the arranger of a set of lullabies written by teen songwriters.
