Across the Pond: Music for Historic Trumpet and Fortepiano

February 13, 2018 @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm EST

$10 – $15

Grand Harmonie’s Christopher Belluscio and Sylvia Berry present
Across the Pond: Mister Harper and Mister Johnson. This program is a re-imagining of a Philadelphia Soiree featuring music for historic trumpets and fortepiano. In the 18th and early 19th centuries, domestic musical salons were a vital and important part of the music scenes in major cities throughout Europe and the budding United States. Musicians like Therese Jansen and Thomas Harper held court in London, while John Norton and Francis Johnson made waves in Philadelphia. Johnson, an African American keyed bugler, violinist, and composer, eventually performed in London as well, bringing a group of black musicians to perform in celebrations for Queen Victoria’s coronation in 1838. In this concert you will hear an Broadwood fortepiano from 1806, built in London and housed in Philadelphia for many years until restored in 2011, and a variety of English trumpets built in the 19th century. Come hear these stunning instruments in a beautiful Philadelphia landmark and go back in time with us on the historic grounds of an 1806 mansion!
