Trio Sonnerie


Monica Huggett, director & violin; Emilia Benjamin, viola da gamba; James Johnstone, harpsichord

As afternoon sunlight streams through the golden Tiffany dome of the Pompeian Room, you will relish a program of Baroque masterworks performed by the international virtuoso Monica Huggett and the Trio Sonnerie. Music lovers and connoisseurs alike will enjoy this concert, presented by an ensemble whose “performances are immaculate in style, and infectious” (London Times). You will “listen with the pleasure of rediscovery and of reacquainting yourself with a great lady of Baroque music” (Diapason). On the program will be music by J. S. Bach as well as the master of the French Baroque, Marin Marais, whose life was the basis for the enchanting film, Tous les Matins du Monde. “Huggett’s playing - on three violins - shines with ease and expression” (London Times).
