The music brought to America by German immigrants is but one of the many contributions made to the state of Missouri by these early settlers. Music from the Fatherland brought comfort and enjoyment to those carving out a new homeland in the 1800s. Hear a selection of classical compositions by Mozart performed on period instruments; a rare opportunity to experience music as it would have been enjoyed in the 19th century.
This concert, the third in the William H. Pommer series, will feature Julie Rosenfeld playing on a Giovanni Baptista Guadgnini violin, made around 1750, with a reproduction Classical-style transition bow crafted by H. F. Grabenstein in Vermont in 2009. The fortepiano Janice Wenger , Ph.D., will use is a reproduction Viennese instrument modeled after a Walter from ca. 1800, created for the University of Missouri by American Paul McNulty in the Czech Republic in 2006.
This free event is sponsored by Deutschheim State Historic Site with support from the Deutschheim Verein and the Dierberg Educational Foundation.
