Violinist Colin Jacobsen kicks off his stint as Performance Today's Young Artist in Residence with an hour of music with friends. Pianist Benjamin Hochman, violinist Jonathan Gandelsman, and cellist Eric Jacobsen, Colin's brother, play an all-French program: the tender Berceuse by Gabriel Faure, Debussy's poignant final Sonata, a rollicking trio by Francaix, and a gypsy-inspired duo by Jean-Marie Leclair.
