Le Triomphe de l’amour** - "Americans in Paris" - Apr 17, 2010, 7:30 PM
Princeton, NJ

Le Triomphe de l’amour presents "Americans in Paris: Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson." The concert presents music enjoyed by these founding fathers during their years as diplomats in Paris, on period instruments. Guest artist Daniela Pierson, baroque violin, joins members of the ensemble Laura Heimes, soprano; John Burkhalter, recorder; Donna Fournier, viola da gamba and baroque cello; and Janet Palumbo, harpsichord.

John Burkhalter will present a pre-concert talk at 7:30 pm; the concert begins at 8:00 pm. In his talk, Mr. Burkhalter will illuminate the musical interests of Franklin and Jefferson. Sent on diplomatic missions to France, Benjamin Franklin and Thomas Jefferson enjoyed spectacular chamber music during their time in Paris.

The concert will feature instrumental music and songs enjoyed by Franklin and Jefferson during their Paris years. Violinist Daniela Pierson will perform several works that Thomas Jefferson played, including music by Giardini, Nicolai, and Wodiczka, as well as Tartini’s violin sonata “Dido abbandonata.” Soprano Laura Heimes will be featured in songs composed by women who were intimate friends of Franklin and Jefferson—Madame Brillon and Maria Cosway—along with popular Scotch airs and works by Mondonville, Pleyel, Philidor, and the first American composer of art songs, Francis Hopkinson. Harpsichordist Janet Palumbo will bring to life music collected by Jefferson, including harpsichord music by Balbastre and Rameau’s third Piece de Clavecin en concert.
