KMFA 89.5 broadcast of La Follia's

Presented by KMFA 89.5 and La Follia Austin Baroque at KMFA Classical 89.5

KMFA 89.5 presents a live broadcast of La Follia Austin Baroque “American Roots” on June 28 at 3 p.m. Commemorating July 4, La Follia will re-create a concert where Thomas Jefferson himself would have performed on violin, at his mansion in Monticello. 

In addition to being a Revolutionary, a statesman, a scholar fluent in a half dozen languages, and a President, Thomas Jefferson was a skilled violinist. At his famed mansion in Monticello (which he designed), he would host concerts featuring himself and his family and musical friends, with esteemed guests like his good friend Lafayette, and even “captured” British officers.

La Follia will perform works from Jefferson’s musical library, meticulously catalogued by Jefferson himself, with many pieces annotated in Jefferson’s hand. Jefferson’s taste in these concerts ranged from French and Italian classical music, to English works, to American art songs, folk songs, and folk dances. 

This program is part of KMFA’s Listen Local series of locally-produced radio broadcasts of Austin’s finest classical music performances.
