Third parlor concert performance will include history of violin sonatas
North Stonington — The town's historical society will be hosting their third event in a parlor concert series at 4 p.m. Sunday titled, "Chamber Music for a New Spring: A Pastoral Walk Through Three Centuries of Violin Sonatas."
The concert will feature violinist Marina Fragoulis and harpsichordist/pianist Aymeric Dupré la Tour playing violin sonatas by Schmelzer, John Baltzar, Corelli, Scarlatti, Schubert and Beethoven.
The concert will include the historical society's recently-restored 1857 A.H. Gale piano, as well as historical instruments from the barqoue and modern era, showing how the violin and keyboard have historically accompanied each other.
Fragoulis is a founder and artistic director of Dorian Baroque, a conductor-less chamber orchestra that uses period instruments and historical knowledge to inform their performances.
Aymeric Dupré la Tour is artistic director of the North Stonington Historical Society and director of music and organist at First Church Congregational in Fairfield.
The event will take place at the Main House at 1 Wyassup Road. Tickets cost $20 per person. Reservations are required, and can be obtained by calling (860) 599-3608 or (860) 245-5322.
