Sounds in Mrs. Gould's Salon

Step back in time for a concert of music that Lyndhurst’s grande dame Helen Gould and her family and friends might have heard at the dawn of the 20th century, featuring the beloved Dumky Trio, inspired by Bohemian folk music and composed by the formidable Czech master ANTONIN DVORAK just before he crossed the Atlantic for an eventful 3-year stay in New York. Also includes music by Tarrytown’s most illustrious composer of the era, CHARLES TOMLINSON GRIFFES, and one of 19th century America’s greatest musical figures, GEORGE WHITEFIELD CHADWICK.
