The Six were a group of six young composers based in Montparnasse, Paris, touted by music critic Henri Collet as France’s answer to the Russian ’Mighty Handful’ and given the soubriquet Les Six.
In two performances, Lee Shi Mei and Lim Yan present music for violin and piano by each of the six composers, including many lesser-known masterworks as well as the ubiquitous Violin Sonata by Francis Poulenc.
