Judith Conrad with the Delight Consort (Paul Ukleja, Cornett, Recorder, Irish Tinwhistle, Otto Guzman, Cello, Cornett and Recorder Frank Fitzpatrick, Recorder, Sackbutt) present a program of late 18th c. genre of music for piano with instrumental accompaniment, including works of C.F. Fischer, W. Williams, W.A. Mozart and J.C. Bach, at the Loring Greenough House, on Sunday, April 21, 2013, at 3:00 p.m., at the historic Loring-Greenough House, 12 South Street, Jamaica Plain MA.
This concert will welcome home the reconditioned box forte piano. The Forte Piano at the Loring-greenough House was made in London in 1790 by the firmof Longman and Bropirp. Since its 1999 restoration, when it was displayed as part of the Boston Early Music Festival, the forte piano has been featured annually in the Sunday Afternoon at the ‘Greenough House parlor concert series. For the past season, it has been in the workshop of Tim Hamilton, who originally restored it in 1999. Now, it is back at the Loring-Greenough House for us all to enjoy.
Meet the artists at afternoon tea following the program.
The Sunday Afternoon at the ‘Greenough House series recreates the atmosphere of 18th and 19th century “musical afternoons” in the 1760 Loring-Greenough House, twice monthly, October to May. Tickets are available at the door: donation $15 ($10 seniors, students and JPTC members). Space is limited; reservations are suggested—call 617-524-3158 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
