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.
