Sándor Szabó to Give Harpsichord Concert--From Renaissance to Rock--Sunday, April 23 PDF Print Email


By Dr. Sándor Szabó, Music Director and Organist, The Reformed Church of Bronxville

Apr. 12, 2017:  Dr. Sándor Szabó will present a concert titled "The Art of the Harpsichord--From Renaissance to Rock" on Sunday, April 23, at 4:00 pm in the intimate sanctuary of GoldenSword International Fellowship Church, 10 Tanglewylde Avenue.

The program will include compositions by the most brilliant composers of the Renaissance, Baroque, and Classical eras juxtaposed with exuberant works by some of 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, and plucked, on a Hubbard French Double manual, built in 1974, a copy of a harpsichord by eminent French harpsichord builder Pascal J. Taskin, who flourished in the eighteenth century. Today, his instruments are considered the pinnacle of the art.

The program will include the following works: the charming "Under the Linden Tree" by Sweelinck; the rhapsodic and virtuosic Chromatic Fantasy and Fugue by Bach; the enchanting and poetic Air and Variations, ("Harmonious Blacksmith") by Handel; the flamboyant La Marche des Scythes by Royer; the witty D Major sonata, K. 13, by Scarlatti; the famous "Turkish March" by Mozart; the jazzy Blue Rondo a la Turk by BrubeckBeethoven's regal "God Save the King" variations; rags by Joplin and Locklair; the rock-infused Danca Ostinata by Albright; and Bird-Boogie by Byrd/Goebels. Fun for all ages! 

Hungarian keyboard virtuoso Dr. Sándor Szabó has performed in major concert halls and cathedrals throughout Europe and North America on harpsichord, piano, and organ. Dr. Szabó is currently music director and organist at The Reformed Church of Bronxville.

Tickets are $15, $10, and $5 in advance and $20, $15, and $10 at the door. For more information, email CLOAKING or call 908-267-1980.

Books & Culture

Bronxville Public Library

The Bronxville Public Library traces its origins back to 1875, when it was a small lending library housed in a room attached to the “Bronxville Model School.” The Library was officially chartered in 1906 and moved into the Village Hall Building. The needs of the library grew with the town and, in 1942, a new standalone building was erected, which is where the Library is today. Over the years, the Library was renovated and expanded to meet the needs of the community.

The Library has wonderful resources for adults and children and offers a comfortable and relaxing environment. The Library also houses a fine art collection, consisting principally of Bronxville painters and sculptors.

The Library offers special events, art exhibitions, and programs for adults, young adults and children.  All events are open to the public, unless otherwise indicated.
