Her Belgian-native flautist-husband. Joining them on the bandstand for the performance are 

Now longtime New Yorkers, the two musicians collaborate with – as they do tonight – a wide array of equally accomplished colleagues. During the past three decades Figarova & Platteau have toured the world many times over as well as appearing at numerous top-shelf American venues and festivals. No matter the location, Figarova delivers concerts filled with mostly all-original material that is arranged in nearly flawless fashion for her sextet.
