Jolidon Concert Series
Westminster Presbyterian Church, 2080 Boulevard, West Hartford, CT
Robert Connell

The Musical Club of Hartford is so fortunate to be hosting these incredible musicians, including Adam Pearl on harpsichord; the current President of the Viola da Gamba Society of America, Lisa Terry, on cello and viola da gamba; Richard Stone on theorbo; Hartford's own Emlyn Ngai on violin; and Gywn Roberts on flute and recorder.

This group of five musicians is part of the Tempesta di Mare Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra. They will perform a program of Baroque chamber music gems centering around works composed by Georg Phillip Telemann during his eight-month sojourn in Paris in 1737. These will include Telemann’s Concerto No. 1 in G major (TWV 43:G1), Quatuor in G Major (TWV 43:G4) and Quatuor in A minor (TWV 43:a 2). Music by Telemann’s Parisian friends and fellow composers Jean-Baptiste Forqueray (Chaconne from Suite N. 3 in D Major), Michel Blavet (Sonata in E minor, Opus 3 No. 3), and Jean-Pierre Guignon (Sonata in C minor, Opus 1 No. 9) will round out the program.

About the Jolidon Concert Series

Twice per musical season (Sept-May), the Musical Club of Hartford presents a concert by exceptional professional guest artists, typically from outside the Hartford area. Called the Jolidon Concerts, these performances are funded by a generous bequest to the Musical Club of Hartford by the late Marjorie Jolidon, a music educator and Musical Club president from 1995 to 1997.
