We will be presenting an evening of music for solo wind instruments with fortepiano, at the Frederick Historical Piano Collection. A popular form of entertainent around the turn of the 19th century was the salon concert, a small scale performance of chamber music presented in an elegant private home. Our audience will hear a collection of parlor ballads for cornopean, a trumpet relative; a newly-discovered trio for two horns and piano by Louis-Francois Dauprat; the Mozart flute sonata in G major K.11; and the Wagenseil trombone concerto, probably the first such piece ever written. Each piece will be accompanied on an original piano from the Frederick collection, perfectly matched to the work.
