Crossing Borders Music regularly serves up lesser-known scores in cohesive, narrative programs, and this survey is no exception. Pianist Marianne Parker — also one-half of the L+M Duo — plays through neglected Romantic-era keyboard repertoire from Haiti, as well as works by a new guard of living Haitian composers. The evening centerpiece is Edmond Saintonge’s Pages intimes, a three-movement suite brimming with Chopinesque majesty and melancholy.
