Review: ‘Vive la France: The Magic of Saint-Saens’ at The National Chamber Ensemble
Love was in the air as The National Chamber Ensemble presented their Valentine’s Day performance called Vive la France: The Magic of Saint-Saens.
And it was the perfect way to spend a romantic evening with someone you love by attending this wonderful pre-Valentine’s Day concert. There was superb playing by musicians extraordinaire: Carlos César Rodríguez (piano), NCE’s Artistic Director Leonid Sushansky (violin), Michelle Kim (violin), Melissa Dvorak (harp), and Sean Neidlinger (cello).
"Fantasie for Violin and Harp Op.124, performed elegantly and passionately by violinist Leonid Sushansky and harpist Melissa Dvorak...
I don’t mean to harp on this-but we rarely get to hear these two instruments ‘dueting’ and I hope that more composers would write more compositions for these two instruments to perform together, and I hope that these two incredible musicians will have the opportunity to premiere these new works."

Thanks for your great work.
Dear Melissa and Michelle:
On the contrary, it is I who am thanking you both.
It was so nice to hear your sound -- so satisfyingly delightful.
Many in our audience were looking forward to hearing you again. Hope to see you again in the near future.
Thanks, and Happy Thanksgiving.
