“Trio Niche” – Baroque Chamber Music in Old Town Fairfax City!
01/06/2023 to 01/06/20233999 University Drive, Fairfax, VA 22030
"Trio Niche" specializes in historically-informed performance of music from the Classical period. This fortepiano trio was formed by seasoned baroque musicians (of the Wren Masters, Colonial Williamsburg’s Governor’s Musick, and others) to bring a historical sensibility to repertoire from the turn of the nineteenth century. Using a fortepiano that is a modern replica of an 1805 Walther instrument built by Paul McNulte, and both nineteenth-century violin and cello played with reproduction “transitional” classical bows by Eitan Hoffer, this ensemble brings to life the sounds of the salons of Jane Austen’s Bath and Thomas Jefferson’s White House. This concert will feature the music of Haydn, Mozart, Abel, and Breval. FREE concert, no tickets required! Part of the Bonita Lestina Old Town Hall Performance Series sponsored by the City of Fairfax Commission on the Arts.
