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.
