Thank you DOBBS FERRY, NY — December 31, 2020 — Dr. Sándor Szabó will present an enchanting Candlelight Harpsichord Concert on Sunday, January 24th at 3:00pm in the intimate and beautiful church of Our Lady of Pompeii, Dobbs Ferry NY. The program will include compositions by the most brilliant composers of the Renaissance, Baroque and Classical eras juxtaposed with exuberant works by the most notable composers of the twentieth century. This encounter of past and present is sure to engage both intellect and emotion, as Dr. Szabó performs these masterworks written expressly for the Queen of Instruments, the harpsichord.
The concert will be played on instruments built by notable American builder Frank Hubbard. The French Double manual harpsichord is copied after eminent French harpsichord builder Pascal J. Taskin, who flourished in the 18thcentury. Today, his instruments are considered the pinnacle of the art.
The program will include the following works: the brilliant Toccata by Sweelinck; the majestic Italian Concerto byBach; the Gaelic Chaccone in G, by Handel; the flamboyant La Marche des Scythes by Royer; the witty G Major sonata K. 445 by Scarlatti; Beethoven’s regal God Save the King variations; Bird-Boogie by Byrd/Goebels and the dixie influenced Saints’ March by Utterback. Fun for all ages is guaranteed!
