The Metropolitan Opera’s Ronnita Miller takes the New World Center stage to perform delightful songs by classical music’s symphonic masters. Igor Stravinsky embraces his playful side with songs inspired by Russian folk tunes and sleepy tomcats. Gabriel Fauré enchants with his Second Piano Quartet and selections from La Bonne Chanson, a dreamy song cycle based on love poems. Brazilian sambas and tangos are at the heart of Darius Milhaud’s Dances of the Little Crocodile. Start the afternoon with gems by two composers overshadowed in history: Joseph Boulogne—Mozart’s contemporary and rival—and Germaine Tailleferre, the only female in the famed composer group Les Six.
