French, German and Early Italian Music for Violin and Harpsichord

  • Ravalli County Museum 205 Bedford St Hamilton, MT, 59840 United States

Bitterroot Baroque and The Ravalli County Museum are co-sponsoring a lively concert of music for violin and harpsichord played by just-retired St. Louis Symphony Orchestra violinist Lorraine Glass-Harris (sister of Missoula's Fern Glass-Boyd!) and Missoula harpsichordist Aneta Panusz who plays keyboards for String Orchestra of the Rockies. These two friends will indulge their great love of Baroque music by giving the Hamilton audience a varied program including some lovely solo French harpsichord music by Jacques Duphly and a Sonata by the peerless Italian Violinist, Arcangelo Corelli, and moving a generation later, another Sonata by the French virtuoso, Jean Baptiste Senaillé.  Another treat will be a trip to 17th century Germany and the work of one of Germany's first virtuosos, Johann Schop, with his hauntingly beautiful working of the Lachrimae Pavan. The museum makes this a particularly festive event with its annual display of decorated trees in the concert hall and wine offerings for the concertgoers.
