Violin and Piano Concert by Michael Tropepe Nov. 17 at 7:00pm
On Saturday evening, Nov.17, Michael Tropepe has invited us to his violin recital in the sanctuary at 7 pm. Michael and his accompanist’s featured work is the romantic Grieg Sonata no. 3. They will also play works from Leclair, Amy Beach, Wieniawski, and the exciting Violin Sonata in G minor by Tartini, in which, deep in a dream, he is tempted by the devil’s dazzling display on the violin. Upon awakening, he immediately wrote down all he could remember and this piece is what resulted!
